ON THIS DAY: Arkansas, Still Win 1995 SEC Men’s Golf Championships
MAY 14, 1995 (Nashville, Tenn.) – Arkansas, in its fourth season as an SEC member, fired a final-round, 8-under-par 280 to edge Auburn by one stroke and claim the program’s first SEC Men’s Golf Championship at Spinghouse Golf Club. Individually, Razorback junior Bud Still cruised to the individual title, also a program first, while teammate Steven Bright finished second.
The Razorbacks’ score of 8-under-par final round was the program’s best until 12 years later when the 2017 squad posted a 12-under round.
Still, who was 2-under through 36 holes, fired a final-round 64 to finish at 10-under (70-72-64) and win by four strokes. At the time, Still was just the second Razorback (on record) to ever post a 64 and his 54-hole score of 206 was the best by a Razorback at the SEC Championship until Sebastian Cappelen shot 202 in 2013.
Bright tied for second as he carded rounds of 72-68-70 for a 6-under-par 210.
Also contributing to the championship were Rod Ellis (75-73-71=219/T26); Tag Ridings (71-74-76=221/T29) and Mike Shevlin (76-+75-75=226/T42).
The Razorbacks went on to place 13th at the NCAA Central Regional. However, Still advanced to the NCAA Championship as an individual thanks to a third-place finish (73-70-70=213/-3).
