GULF SHORES, Ala. (11/6/12) - Junior Chance Holden recorded a top-20 finish to pace the Arkansas State men's golf team as play concluded Tuesday at the inaugural ASU Fall Beach Classic.  Holden, who finished tied for 14th place, shot a 9-over par 225 to lead the Red Wolves to a ninth place finish with a three-round 920.

A-State posted a score of 310 in the final round at the Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club, climbing one place in the final standings after ending the tournament's first and second rounds on Monday with a 304 and 306, respectively.

ASU finished just two strokes behind eighth-place Rice and within six strokes of seventh-place Troy.  Vanderbilt took home the title with a score of 882, while Murray State and UALR finished in a tie for second with total scores of 891.

Junior Easton Key shot a 14-over par 230 to follow Holden's score for the Red Wolves, placing him tied for 35th.  Senior Wessel Zwiegers and sophomore Alex Hewitt finished in a tie for 50th place with scores of 237 each.  Hewitt shot a 2-over par 74 in the final round, which was tied for the second-lowest round of any A-State golfer in the tournament.  Senior Matt Howton rounded out the team scoring for ASU with a 238 total for the tournament.

Three ASU golfers competed as individuals in the tournament.  Leading the way was freshman Seth Garner, who shot a 19-over par 235 to finish in a tie for 45th place.  Sophomore Tommy Eagan shot a 238 for the tournament, but also posted a 2-over par 74 in the final round.  Sophomore Eli Mattioli finished the tournament with a 242 score.
