FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Just hours away from making his pro debut at the Web.com Tour Air Capital Classic, recent Arkansas men’s golf graduate Sebastian Cappelen earned his second All-American honor of the week and seventh of his career when he was named to the PING All-America second team by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).

Cappelen has now been named a PING All-American four straight years while also earning Golfweek All-American status in 2011, 2013 and 2014. Just two days ago, the Denmark native earned a spot on the Golfweek All-America second team.

Just the second player in program history to earn All-SEC honors four straight years, Cappelen is the first Razorback to be named an All-American in each of his four years.

On Monday, Cappelen qualified for this week’s Web.com Tour Air Capital Classic in Wichita, Kan. held at Crestview CC. Cappelen’s pro debut, which began with a 2:05 p.m. tee time on Thursday, will take place just miles away from Prairie Dunes Country Club where he finished tied for ninth at the NCAA Championships held less than a month ago.

Cappelen earned his second straight All-SEC first team honor this year, leading the Razorbacks in nearly every statistical category including counting scores (38), scoring average (71.3), top 5s (3), top 10s (6), top 20s (11), under-par rounds (19), birdies (135) and pars (442). In the fall at the Crooked Stick Intercollegiate, Cappelen made it four straight years with a tournament title, winning the event thanks to three straight under-par rounds. The trio of under-par performances help make up his team-leading 19 for the year and stagger total of 75 at par or lower for his career.

Cappelen finished the year ranked No. 9 by Golfstat and No. 16 by Golfweek following the 20th top 10 finish of his career at the NCAA Championships. Arkansas’ low man all three rounds at the NCAA Championships, Cappelen’s final round as a Razorback was a two-under 68

The program’s all-time leader in scoring average (72.0), Cappelen’s illustrious career also features a 2013 SEC individual championship, four PING All-Central Region awards and three appearances at the Palmer Cup for Team Europe. Over his 49 career tournaments in the Arkansas starting lineup, Cappelen turned in a counting score in 134 of 144 rounds to go along with 37 top 20s, 20 top 10s and 441 birdies.
