Arkansas Claims Third-Place Finish at Mizzou Intercollegiate

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Razorback golf team, aided by three individual top-15 performances, finished in third place at the two-day UMB Bank-Mizzou Tiger Intercollegiate Classic in Columbia, Mo. Arkansas carded a 24-over-par 888 on the par-72, 7,221-yard course at The Club in Old Hawthorne to record its fifth top-three result of the season. On the individual leaderboard, Andrew Landry was the top Razorback finisher with a fourth-place finish.

Arkansas, which began the day in second place, shot a 16-over-par 304 during Tuesday’s final round. Along with Landry, sophomore David Lingmerth earned a top-10 finish as he tied for ninth place with two other golfers. Will Osborne, Arkansas’ third finisher, tied for 15th place among a group of five golfers.

Landry posted a two-over-par 218 during the 54-hole event. The Groves, Texas, native tallied his third top-five finish of the season, and ninth of his career.

Earning his third top-10 result of the season, Lingmerth fired a two-under-par 70 during the final round to climb out of a tie for 37th place. The score was the low round of the day by any golfer in the field.

Playing in his fourth event of the season, Osborne collected his second finish inside the top 15. The Razorback junior began the day tied for fourth place, but his final-round 80 dropped him into a tie for 15th position with four other golfers.
