Alan Bratton:  University of Oklahoma State

For Alan Bratton’s Oklahoma State golf team, the 2018-19 campaign resulted in a third consecutive top-five NCAA finish for the Cowboys, who concluded the year as the nation’s top-ranked team for the second consecutive season.

Behind one of the most formidable duos in college golf history in Matthew Wolff and Viktor Hovland, Bratton’s squad enjoyed six tournament titles, including its first Big 12 crown under his direction.

In addition to the Cowboy tandem earning first-team All-America status, Austin Eckroat, who was also a 2019 Palmer Cup participant, was named a third-team selection and Zach Bauchou garnered honorable mention status.

In the classroom, OSU produced five Academic All-Big 12 selections, giving OSU 12 over the past two seasons. Additionally, senior Hayden Wood was named an Academic All-American for the second year in a row.

Bratton took the reins of the Cowboy golf program in 2013-14, becoming just the fourth head coach since the program’s inception in 1947.
In his seven seasons with the Cowboys, the program won its 10th national title in 2006 and produced its eighth NCAA champion in Jonathan Moore. Additionally, the Cowboys finished in the top five at the NCAA Championship on five occasions and captured six conference crowns.

During his tenure, OSU generated 23 All-Americans, including 10 first-team selections. The Cowboys also produced national players of the year in Rickie Fowler, Pablo Martin and Peter Uihlein.
Bratton was instrumental in Uihlein becoming the program’s fourth U.S. Amateur champion, serving as the All-American’s caddy for his 2010 victory at Chambers Bay.

On the women’s side, he helped prepare the Cowgirls for back-to-back top-10 finishes at the national tournament. In 2009, OSU finished fourth before tying for eighth place the following year.  The Cowgirls also captured three Big 12 titles during Bratton’s time on staff.
Bratton was equally successful in the classroom, garnering Academic All-America honors in 1994 and 1995 on his way to earning a degree in business administration.
Bratton and his wife, Gretchen, who is also an OSU graduate, have three children: Mason, Noah and Gunnar.
