Moore Joins Elite Company With SEC Honors
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Arkansas senior Taylor Moore picked up a pair of postseason awards Wednesday afternoon from the league office, earning second team All-SEC honors and landing on the SEC Community Service Team.
Moore becomes the sixth player in program history to earn All-SEC honors in three different seasons after being named SEC Co-Freshman of the Year in 2013, followed by second team honors in 2015 and 2016. He is one of five players in the league to earn All-SEC honors three times in the last four years.
He led Arkansas to a spring head-to-head record of 71-23-3, including top five finishes in seven of the last nine tournaments and a T-3rd place showing at the SEC Championship. He captured the individual title at the All-American Intercollegiate and leads the team with a 71.4 stroke average in 32 rounds on the year.
Moore has four top five finishes this year and had a stretch where he posted seven straight rounds under par and finished first, second and third in consecutive tournaments. The Edmond, Oklahoma native recorded a T-5th place finish at the 2016 SEC Championship, giving him back-to-back top 10 finishes at the event and making him the third Razorback in the last 20 years to accomplish the feat.
Off the course, Moore has spearheaded the community service efforts for the men’s golf program. He participated in Special Olympics at Kids First, helped organize and set up a diabetes fundraiser race for the American Diabetes Association and participated in Friday Night Live. He also worked an after-hours program for children in need at LifeSource International, took photographs, signed autographs and spoke with children about the importance of an education at Book Hogs.
Moore and the Razorbacks will learn their postseason destination Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. when the NCAA selection committee unveils the 81-team field on Golf Channel’s “Morning Drive.”
