  1. Damn we just killed it today we seat at 20 under yep I said 20 under atm OU is 6 shots back after starting off leading the regional yesterday. We shot 19 strokes better today then USCe who was ahead of us by 2 strokes. What's a shock is it could have been even better if not for Evan having a bad round with two double bogeys and a 77 Amazing day!!!!!!
  2. Off to a good start pay attention to how young we are. We have 2 freshman 2 Soph. and 1 junior and both our freshmen shot the lower rounds. NORMAN, Okla. – The Auburn men's golf team opened NCAA Tournament play with 8-under, 280 to position itself inside the top three following Monday's round of action at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club. "We are a very young team but extremely talented and skilled. Our guys played with a sense of maturity today, and I'm extremely proud of them. We need to get the putters rolling to have a chance to compete for a championship. It's exciting to continue to watch them grow as young men and players." Auburn was led by none other than sophomore J.M. Butler, who shot the low round of the day with a 66 (-6). He was aided by five birdies on the back nine, four of which came in his final five holes. The Louisville, Kentucky product's opening frame 66 is tied for the second lowest round in Jimmie Austin history. Butler's total stands tied with five others, including Jordan Spieth in 2012. Butler's score also marked his team-leading 13th round in the 60s this season. Of his 28 rounds on the year, he has produced 21 at par or better. Freshman Brendan Valdes recorded the next lowest round on behalf of the Tigers with a 69 (-3). Valdes was aided by five birdies on his opening nine and his second career eagle on hole 13. Austin, Texas native Evan Vo continued to be a steady hand for the Tigers as he 72 (E) on the day. The freshman birdied and bogeyed just once, shooting even par on 16 of 18 holes. Vo leads the 2022 roster with six rounds at par this season. Following tightly behind, junior Alex Vogelsong and sophomore Carson Bacha both shot 1-over 73 on Monday. Both men enter Tuesday tied for 30th on the individual leaderboard. After 18 holes, the home team and No. 1 seed Oklahoma leads at 11-under. Southeastern Conference foe South Carolina is in second place a stroke back from the Sooners, and both Auburn and Utah are tied for third at 8-under. Texas sits in the final cutoff position at 282 (-6). The Tigers have a seven-stroke advantage on the dreaded sixth place position. For Tuesday's competition, Auburn will be paired with No. 1 seed Oklahoma and No. 4 seed South Carolina, teeing off at 8 a.m. CT on hole one.

  5. Dominant bullpen, resilient offense power No. 20 Auburn past Alabama Story Link AUBURN, Ala. – No. 20 Auburn overcame a four-run deficit to defeat Alabama, 6-4, and secure the series win Saturday afternoon at Plainsman Park. Alabama struck for four runs on four hits in the first inning, but a dominant bullpen allowed Auburn's offense to chip away at the Crimson Tide's lead, eventually coming all the way back to complete the Tigers' 18th come-from-behind victory this year. "Today was a good day to win a series," head coach Butch Thompson said. "We had a tough start but maintained good composure. It took a long time for us to get back in the ballgame, but those fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh innings we linked up to score a run every inning. "Only four baserunners reached the last eight innings," Thompson added. "Our pitching staff just grinded through trying to get us back in this ballgame. Carson Swilling came in and really mixed his pitches before turning it over to Chase Allsup. This was Allsup's moment. We had Burkhalter ready to go, but we ended up not needing him." Auburn (35-16, 15-11 SEC) was forced to turn to the bullpen in the second inning. Tommy Sheehan, Swilling (3-2, 5.62), and Allsup made up the relief effort and held Alabama scoreless and to only two hits with one walk and seven strikeouts, ultimately facing just three batters over the minimum in their eight innings of work. "I was just trying to stay within myself and do what I can," Sheehan said. "We knew they were a good fastball hitting team, so we were trying to get a good mix of pitches in there today which worked well for me and the guys that followed me." After scoring in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings to tie the game, 4-4, Bobby Peirce delivered the go-ahead RBI single t give Auburn the lead for good. The go-ahead hit was Peirce's third in SEC play. The right fielder continued to make things happen on the base paths, eventually extending the lead to two as he scored on a wild pitch. "I've said it once and I'll say it again, we never quit," Peirce said. "We just kept chipping away and battling." Alabama (27-24, 10-16 SEC) jumped out to an early lead after striking for four runs in the first inning. All four runs were scored with two outs and followed a bang-bang potential double play. The big blow for the Crimson Tide came on a three-run home run. The big first frame forced Auburn to turn to the bullpen in the second inning. Sheehan entered looking to keep the Tigers in the ballgame, and the graduate transfer did just that by tossing four shutout innings while allowing one hit and one walk with four stirkeouts. Auburn cut into Alabama's advantage in the fourth inning on Peirce's solo home run. The blast was his sixth of the season and made it a 4-1 ballgame. The Tigers continued to fight back, adding two more runs in the fifth. With runners on first and second, Sonny DiChiara grounded a ball to first base that was thrown away. On the play, Garrett Farquhar came around to score. Rambusch then lined a ball to center for an RBI single to cut the Crimson Tide's lead to one. Sheehan turned the ball over to Swilling in the sixth inning, and the right-hander set Alabama down in order in his first inning of work, ultimately throwing two scoreless innings without allowing a hit or walk and adding a strikeout en route to earning the win. With the bullpen continuing to put up zeroes, Brooks Carlson led off the bottom half of the sixth inning with a single before Kason Howell delivered a sacrifice bunt to move Carlson to second. With two outs in the inning, Nate LaRue came up with the game-tying hit on an RBI single to center field to plate Carlson and tie the game at four. Auburn pushed across a run in the seventh inning to take the lead from Alabama. Rambusch connected on a two out single and then stole second base. Peirce lined an RBI single into right field to give the Tigers a 5-4 lead. Carlson followed with another single that moved Peirce to third base. Peirce then scored on a wild pitch to increase the Auburn advantage to two. Chase Allsup worked the final two frames in scoreless fashion to earn his second save of the year. The freshman allowed one hit with no walks and two strikeouts, ultimately facing the minimum in his two innings of work thanks to a timely double play. Offensively, Rambusch and Peirce led the way for the Tigers. Rambusch collected three hits and an RBI on the way to recording his 25th multi-hit game of the season. Peirce delivered two hits, including a homer, and drove in a pair. Four Auburn players had multiple hits in the win. Game three of the series is set for Sunday at 3 p.m. C.T. at Plainsman Park.

  15. Biggest comeback in Auburn golf history. I thought they had a chance because this team can shoot a low round but I wouldn't have bet the house on it. We were a +29 0n Tuesday and ended up +17. Unbelievable route STILLWATER, Okla. – Never count out this Auburn women's golf team. When the third round of the NCAA Stillwater Regional started Wednesday, Auburn was 11 shots back of fourth place with the top four teams qualifying for the NCAA Championships. This team didn't flinch. The Tigers shot 12-under on the day and were 11-under on the back nine alone to move up into a tie for third place, punching their ticket to NCAAs. "An absolutely amazing day," Auburn head coach Melissa Luellen said. "It was one of the greatest comebacks in Auburn history. They were locked in mentally. The goal was five mental errors or less each. I think we had five total. "I'm so happy for our seniors who get another chance to win a championship. I'm going to see my hair stylist to cover the gray hairs that popped." With a third-round score of 276 (-12), it was the lowest NCAA Regional round in Auburn history, and it also set the Karsten Creek Golf Club course record for a single round. Sophomore Anna Foster had the low round of the day for the Tigers, shooting a 5-under 67 with six birdies and back-to-back birdies on the last two holes. It was the second lowest individual round all-time for Auburn at an NCAA Regional. Foster moved up into a tie for 10th overall and was one of three Tigers to finish in the top 10. Seniors Mychael O'Berry and Kaleigh Telfer finished tied for seventh on the individual leaderboard after each fired a 69 (-3) on Wednesday. The duo combined to make 10 birdies on the day and were a combined 5-under over the last five holes. Sophomore Elina Sinz, who was subbed into the lineup prior to round two, delivered on Wednesday with a 1-under 71. She made three birdies on the day and was one of four Tigers to birdie the 18th hole. Rounding out the Auburn contingent was junior Megan Schofill who finished in a tie for 39th overall after shooting a 78 (+6) in the third round. Baylor (865), Arizona State (879), Oklahoma State (881) and Auburn (881) each clinched a spot at the NCAA Championships, finishing ahead of Michigan State (885), Furman (898), Clemson (901), North Carolina State (915), Tulane (925), California (928), Campbell (945) and Illinois State (966).
