Only weeks after his record-setting performance at the NCAA menâ€™s golf championships, Oklahoma State junior golfer Charles Howell will become a professional.
The OSU athletic media relations department announced Tuesday that Howell would forego his senior year and therefore deny himself a chance to defend his national title. Howell also helped the Cowboys win a team championship this season.
Howell broke the national collegiate scoring record at last monthâ€™s NCAA Championships by firing a three-round score of 23-under-par. He won the event by eight strokes.
Earlier this month, Howell was named Big 12 Menâ€™s Athlete of the Year and national collegiate golfer of the year.
Howell ends his Cowboy career with five individual tournament titles, tying him for first in school history.
