Bobby Cornett returned as head coach in 2009 after serving as assistant coach for 10 seasons. He was previously Rams' head coach (1985-99) but stepped down in 1999 to concentrate on the PGA Senior (Champions) Tour. Cornett led Texas Wesleyan to three national NAIA titles (1990, 1995 and 1999) earning NAIA National Coach of the Year honors with each championship. Cornett was a 1972 NAIA All-American competing for the Rams.

In the final event of the shortened spring 2020 season, Texas Wesleyan shot a wind-blown 306-298-325 and placed second in the San Antonio Shoot-Out at TPC San Antonio in San Antonio, Tex.  Wayland Baptist recorded a +29 893 total to win by 36 strokes over the Rams. Morningside, Houston-Victoria and Truett-McConnell filled out the top five in the 15-team tournament. The course was par 72, measuring 6,701 yards and with a tough set-up plus wind, produced an average 18-hole score of 82.0 strokes. Winds were so strong during the third round that the scoring average jumped to 84.9 strokes.

The Rams' Tyron Davidowitz (73-71-78=222) tied for first and Victor Miron (74-76-80=230) claimed 10th.

Texas Wesleyan won its first national title since 1999, capturing the 2019 NAIA Championship. The Rams ended Oklahoma City's four-year title run, winning the 2019 Sooner Athletic Conference Championship.

Texas Wesleyan placed sixth in the 2012 NAIA Championship, and won the Red River Athletic Conference Championship, TWU finished ninth in the 2011 NAIA Championship, and won the Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC) Championship. In 2010, it was seventh at the NAIA Championship, and won the Red River/Midlands Conference Championship.
