Andrew Landry Receives Second-Team All-SEC Honors

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas golfer Andrew Landry earned second-team All-Southeastern Conference recognition as announced by the league office Wednesday. This is the second all-conference honor for the Razorback junior as he was also named to the second team last season.

Landry led the Razorbacks with a 72.61 scoring average over the course of 11 events played this season. He also led the team with seven top-10 finishes and five rounds shot in the 60s. Landry was UA’s top finisher in eight of 11 events, including two top-five results.

The Groves, Texas, native turned in a season-best finish at the Border Olympics in Laredo, Texas, where he tied for second place with teammate Sam Chavez to lead the Razorbacks to the team title.

In his last outing, Landry finished tied for 15th at the 2008 SEC Championships in St. Simons Island, Ga.
