Randall grad and current Buff wins state and national title in golf in exactly one yearAMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) – Not many people can say they won a state championship in high school.There are even fewer people who can say they won a National Championship in college.I bet there are only a handful of people who can say they have won both.Well there is one person who can say that, Randall alum and current West Texas A&M golfer, Wyatt Provence.

Not only did Wyatt win both, he did it all in a year.On May 23, 2023, Wyatt and the Randall Raiders won the UIL 4A state title in golf. On the same day, exactly one year later, on May 23, 2024, Wyatt wins the NCAA Division II Individual Men’s Golf National Championship as a West Texas A&M Buffalo.“To be able to do what we did last year was one of the best feelings, but what I did this year was an unreal experience, and it just means a lot to bring it back here,” Wyatt said.Not only did Wyatt win the National Title, he shot the lowest three-round score in Division II Championship history.

His score was a 201, -12.“I honestly didn’t feel too many nerves the first round, which usually I do, but yeah I was just telling myself that I’m prepared for this and this is why I play golf. It’s for moments like this,” Wyatt said.“I always knew he had the talent to do something like this,” West Texas A&M men’s golf head coach Axel Ochoa said. “To be honest with you, I didn’t think as a freshman he was going to go out there and win nationals by five shots.

I think that is very, very impressive.”Wyatt is the first golfer in WT history to win an individual National Championship. He is also only the fifth in Lone Star Conference history to ever capture the feat.Wyatt says he didn’t think he would have this much success early on in his golf career, but that is just how the sport of golf swings.“You never know what happens with golf,” Wyatt said. “You can play really good, you can play really bad each and every day. I was just glad to be able to play really well.”More history was made for WT golf at the National Championships.

Wyatt along with the team advanced to the match play portion.WT fell just short in the semifinals, but it was a time Wyatt says he will never forget.“It was amazing. It was one of the best weeks of my life. We had so much fun just being there. The match play part was very disappointing at the end, but it was a great experience for us and we are glad that we made it that far,” Wyatt said.So two championships, at only 18-years-old.

I think everyone can agree, the future is bright on the golf course for Wyatt Provence.Randall grad and current Buff wins state and national title in golf in exactly one yearAMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) – Not many people can say they won a state championship in high school.There are even fewer people who can say they won a National Championship in college.I bet there are only a handful of people who can say they have won both.Well there is one person who can say that, Randall alum and current West Texas A&M golfer, Wyatt Provence.
