Alabama Wins National Title, Pros Congratulate Teams on Twitter

Alabama senior Trey Mullinax sealed the Tide’s second national championship in as many years in dramatic fashion Wednesday, when he buried an eagle putt on No. 17. The putt capped off a victory for Mullinax, beating Ian Davis 2 and 1, giving Alabama its third win of the day. The Crimson Tide went on to win 4-1 over Oklahoma State, becoming just the second team to win consecutive championships since 1985.

Being the biggest collegiate tournament of the year, several PGA Tour players recognized Alabama’s achievement, as well as the effort by the Cowboys. As expected, a few former Tide golfers — Bud Cauley, Michael Thompson and Dicky Pride — congratulated the guys at their alma mater, and a few other pros chimed in as well:

Alabama’s Bobby Wyatt and Cory Whitsett are expected to turn pro, with Wyatt making his pro debut at the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Conn., in June.
