The Razorbacks have competed as a team in each of the last 13 NCAA Regionals held.
The Razorbacks won the 1991 NCAA Central Regional and have six runner-up finishes to their credit including a second-place finish last season. Overall, Arkansas has advanced from a Regional to the NCAA Championship 18 times.
Arkansas has played at OSU’s Scarlet Course on six previous occasions – twice in the NCAA Championship (1987 and Bud Still as an individual in 1995) and four times in the NCAA Central Regional (1990, 1993, 1999 and 2008).
