The Mean Green men’s golf team won the Conference USA tournament in Texarkana, Texas on Wednesday, ending the four day event with a matchplay win over the University of Alabama – Birmingham. It’s the team’s 30th conference title.

The tournament began on April 26, and the team immediately came out firing. Senior Jason Roets shot a 7-under 65 to help put North Texas in second place after the first day. The team ended up taking the lead the next day.

Day three saw senior Juan Munoz win the individual C-USA championship, and the Mean Green as a team advance to Wednesday’s matchplay event to determine the C-USA team champion. Munoz was 5-under par through the first three days of action.

The Mean Green entered matchplay as the No. 1 seed and began Wednesday by beating the No. 4 seed University of North Carolina – Charlotte in the semifinals. The finals against UAB was close throughout, but sophomore Cory Churchman clinched the title for the Mean Green with a birdie putt for the team’s third match win of the day.

The win gives the Mean Green an automatic berth in the NCAA tournament. The regional round begins on May 14. The location and time have not been announced yet.
