For the second time in school history, UWF won a national championship in men's golf.

This one, however, may be remembered forever.

Trailing in the final two holes, the Argos rallied to force a three-team playoff, then won the NCAA Division II men's championship in dramatic fashion, defeating North Alabama and St. Edwards at Memorial Park Golf Course in Houston.

"I think I just aged 10 years,'' said UWF coach Steve Fell, who also guided the Argos to the 2001 national title. "It was such an emotional day, with all the ups and downs.''

UWF had a four-shot lead and all the momentum going into the final round, but North Alabama and St. Edwards outplayed UWF on the back nine to take over the lead.

UWF freshman Kyle Scott birdied the 17th hole to help force the playoff, then birdied his first playoff to win the title. In the playoff, all five players from each team played separate holes and the best cumulative score decided the champion.

The national golf championship was part of the NCAA Division II Spring Festival in Houston, with championships decided in track, tennis and golf.
