SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, O’ahu – Arkansas sophomore Andrew Landry carded his second straight round in the 60s with a 4-under-par 68 on Thursday afternoon in the second round of the John A. Burns Intercollegiate to move into fifth place.
The Razorbacks made a move up the leaderboard as well on Thursday at the par-72, 6,916-yard Leilehua Golf Course with a 1-under-par 287 to move into a tie for 14th place at 8-over-par 584. UNLV (554) leads the event with two rounds of 11-under-par 277 for a 10-stroke lead over Brigham Young (564).
“I though we played better as a team today,” Arkansas head coach Brad McMakin said. “We are getting the rust off and the younger guys are growing up. Hopefully we continue to get better tomorrow.”
Landry shot a 3-under par 69 in Thursday’s first round and sits at 7-under-par 137, three shots back of the leaders Jarred Texter of UNLV and Frank Wrenn of SMU (-10, 234).
Redshirt freshman Stephen Cox fired the first under-par round of his career with a 1-under 71 in round two, moving up to a tie for 43rd place.
The trio of Jason Turner, Federico Colombo and Allen McFerran all carded solid rounds of 2-over-par 74 on Thursday. Turner moved up to a tie for 77th at 5-over-par 149 for the tournament while Colombo moved into a tie for 99th at 9-over 153. McFerran is a 10-over-par 154 headed into Friday’s final 18 holes.
