In case you missed the golf action last night, Oregon beat Texas on the 21st hole of the final match to win the Men’s NCAA National Golf Championship.
The matches were covered on Golf Channel, and based on the social media reaction, fans loved watching the tournament. It was refreshing to see a different format, less corporate sponsorship, and collegiate players achieve what for many will be the pinnacle of their careers. Sulman Raza poured in the winning putt for the Oregon Ducks at which point the fans “rushed the court” and dog piled the player right there on the green. The scene was something out of a basketball upset instead of the golf course, and that is one reason it was enjoyed by so many. It was the Duck’s first NCAA Golf Championship.
However, the guy who may have enjoyed it most had one of the best views in the house. He also woke up this morning and realized he was a viral social media star. Who, you ask? The chef at Eugene Country Club, who found his perch on the club’s roof.
