AUSTIN — Youth, it has been said, is mostly wasted on the young.

The underclassmen of the Texas men’s golf team are on a quest to dispel that notion and make a real push for the Longhorns’ first national title on the links since 2012.

It helps to have practice facilities and amenities that are among the best in the nation as well as one of the top collegiate courses anywhere in the University of Texas Golf Club, a track good enough to be one of the NCAA Division I regional sites this spring.
