Gators Roll to SEC Championship

RSS

College CentralST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- Behind Brett Stegmaier's final-round 64, Florida came from eight shots back to capture the team title at the 2003 Southeastern Conference Men's Golf Championships at the Seaside Course of the Sea Island Golf Club. The Gators shot a final round 271 to finish the three rounds at 856.
 
Stegmaier, a freshman from Madison, Conn., also took individual medalist honors, shooting a 54-hole SEC Tournament record 203, seven shots under par. He finished one stroke ahead of first and second round leader Kevin Kisner of Georgia, who shot a 68 on Sunday for a three-day total of 204. Auburn's Will Claxton finished third at 210, shooting a 68 in the final round.
 
'This is probably my best round ever,' said Stegmaier, who's 64 is
his best 18-hole score ever. 'On top of that, every one of our guys played
a great round today and that made it more awesome.'
 
The Gators outlasted second place Auburn, which shot a 278 on Sunday for a final round 862. Georgia and Tennessee, which were tied for first
after two rounds, placed third and fourth respectively. The Bulldogs
tallied 289 on Sunday for a three-day total of 866 while the Vols shot a 293
in the final round for a total of 870.
 
South Carolina carded a 292 on Sunday and finished fifth at 875
while Alabama was sixth at 879 (final round 294). Arkansas finished
seventh at 881, shooting a final round 291, Ole Miss was eighth at 890
(final round 296), Kentucky ninth at 899 (final round 289), Vanderbilt 10th
at 902 (final round 290), Mississippi State 11th at 914 (final round 298)
and LSU 12th at 917 (final round 293).
 
Stegmaier, whose best finish this season was a seventh-place at the
Mercedes Benz Collegiate at Ponte Vedra, Fla., is the second straight Gator
to win the individual SEC championship. Last year, Camilo Benedetti won the
individual title, shooting a three-day score of 210 at Sea Island.
 
All five Gator golfers tallied par or better on Sunday. The Gators
had sub-par final round finishes from Matt Every, who shot a 68 on Sunday
for a three-day score of 218 while Camilo Villegas shot a 69 in the final
round for a 218 total. Gator teammates Jordan Code and James Vargas shot
70s in the final round and finished at 217 and 221, respectively.
 
Coach Buddy Alexander's Gators won their first SEC team title since
1999, giving him nine SEC titles, seven while serving as head coach of the
Gators (two at LSU).
 
'We had not put everything together so far this year. Coming into
this tournament, I thought we were a sleeping giant,' said Alexander. 'We
were lucky to be eight shots back going into th final round. It was an
incredible round by our guys today.'
