Andrew Dahl Captures Title at Stonebridge Invi


McKINNEY, Texas. – Junior Andrew Dahl claimed first place at the SMU-Stonebridge Invitational in McKinney, Texas, while the Razorback golf team finished in third. Dahl finished with a final score of 209 after shooting rounds of 71, 68 and 70 to finish seven under par. He led after the first two rounds yesterday and birdied four of the last six holes today to win by one stroke. Dahl’s first place finish was a career-first and was the first individual victory by an Arkansas golfer since Craig Lile at the NCAA Central Regional in 2001.
“I’m very proud of our guys and Andrew Dahl,” Arkansas head coach Mike Ketcham said. “He (Dahl) is very talented and for him to win with this caliber of golfers is great. Lamar and Baylor are good and well coached teams. We can find nothing but positives from this tournament and we were able to eliminate mistakes coming in. The guys have increased mental toughness and I’m excited that we get to go to LSU next week and get even better.”
The Razorbacks had a final score of 862 after shooting 289 in the first two rounds and 284 in the third round, to put them at two under par for the third place finish. Lamar and Baylor tied for first with scores of 857.
Junior Adam Wing finished tied for sixth with a final score of 214 and two under par. He shot rounds of 71, 74 and 69. Freshman Paul Bradshaw rallied from being tied at 42nd after two rounds of 73 and 76 yesterday, to end up in 25th place with a third round of 72 today. His final score of 221 put him at five over par.
Senior Nick Beach finished in 35th after shooting rounds of 74, 76 and 73 and a final score of 223. Junior Seth Murphy rounded out the UA representation with a final score of 225. He shot rounds of 76, 71 and 78.
The Hogs will conclude their fall golf schedule on October 27-29 when they travel to Baton Rouge, La., for the Country Club of Louisiana Invitational.
