Jim Brown, Ohio State head men’s golf coach, told his players during a practice round leading up to the 2004 Big Ten Tournament that he would allow the squad to shave his head if the Buckeyes brought back a Big Ten title to Columbus.

The players responded by winning the league tournament last weekend in Ann Arbor, Mich.

True to his word, members of the Buckeye men’s golf team gave Brown, now in his 31st year at Ohio State, a trim Tuesday following a team meeting at the OSU Scarlet Course.

The Buckeyes have won 23 Big Ten titles overall, 17 of which earned with Brown at the helm.
