Before coming to Baylor as head men’s golf coach, Mike McGraw built a golfing powerhouse at Oklahoma State, with national titles and multiple conference titles, along with the premier golf practice facility in the country. But when he arrived in Waco in the summer of 2014, he had another goal in mind. “I want to do it here,” he said. McGraw’s job, alongside Baylor women’s coach Jay Goble, just got a little more doable — and more luxurious. That’s thanks to the recent dedication of the Billy W. Williams Golf Practice Facility and Clubhouse, the first totally privately funded athletic facility in the ever-growing Baylor athletic footprint. While the official grand opening of the sparkling, multi-million dollar facility took place on Friday with members of the Williams family in attendance, both the men’s and the women’s teams have already earned plenty of on-course success. Both the men’s and women’s teams have recorded top-eight finishes in the NCAA Golf Championships. The women have earned a NCAA runner-up finish while the men recently thrashed an elite Big 12 field to capture the first-ever Big 12 Match play title. – ART STRICKLIN, wacotrib – Read More
