Arkansas Golfers Capture Title at Coastal Caro


MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – The Arkansas golf team won their first team tournament title in five years when they finished in first place at the Coastal Carolina Invitational with a nine-over-par 873 after scoring rounds of 295, 296 and 282. The Razorbacks last won a tournament title in 1998 at the Kroger Intercollegiate when they shot 592.
“We really came from behind to win this tournament,” Arkansas head coach Mike Ketcham said. “We got off to a good start, but struggled on the 14th and 15th holes, then came back to win on the 17th and 18th. It was a good win for us. We’ve come close a couple times this year, but it’s good to know the feeling of winning. The key to winning for us was the consistency this team had. We always have one or two guys leading, but the team as a whole performed well. Hopefully, we’ll be able to build on this for next week at the Morris Williams Invitational.”
After the first day of play UNC-Wilmington (29) held a one stroke lead over Arkansas, but the Hogs were able to pull away when they shot a six-under-par 282 in the last round for a final score of 873. Virginia Tech was close behind in second when they shot a 284 in the final round for a total of 874.
All five UA golfers finished in the top 25. Junior Andrew Dahl led the team with a second place finish. Dahl shot a 70 in the third round to finish out the tournament with a 214 and two under par. It was his fourth top 10 finish of the season. Junior Seth Murphy was next when he tied for seventh with a final score of 220 and four over par after he shot a 74 in the third round.
Freshman Paul Bradshaw shot a 71 in the last round to come away with an 11th place showing and six over par for 222. Senior Nick Beach ended the tournament in 18th with a score of 224 and eight over par after he shot a 73 in the third round.
Junior Adam Wing had a career-best round of 68 to move up to 24th after being in 61st on Monday. His final score was a 10-over-par 226.
The Hogs will play next at the Morris Williams Invitational in Austin, Texas on March 16-18, before they take a week off for spring break.
