HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ A one-two finish by Pablo Martin and Ryan Posey spurs Oklahoma State to its fifth Big 12 golf title.

Martin shot a 2-under par 68 Tuesday and beat Posey by three strokes to claim the individual title with a three-round total of 1-over-par 211. Martin made birdies on his final two holes to seal the win.

Oklahoma State finished seven strokes ahead of Texas A&M for the team title. Texas Tech was third, followed by Texas, Oklahoma and Nebraska.

It was Oklahoma State's 50th conference title overall. Martin became the first Cowboys golfer to win the individual title since Hunter Mahan in 2003.

The tournament was played at Prairie Dunes Golf Club in Hutchinson, Kansas.
