Cappelen Leads No. 20 Razorbacks On First Day At Isleworth

WINDERMERE, Fla. — Led by senior Sebastian Cappelen’s four-under 68, the No. 20 University of Arkansas men’s golf team put together its third straight under-par round with a one-under 287 in the first round of the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational on Sunday at Isleworth Golf and Country Club. The Razorbacks are tied for sixth out of a 15-team field that includes eight ranked squads. Coming off a team win at the Crooked Stick Intercollegiate, Arkansas was one of seven teams to finish the par 72, 7387-yard layout under-par. No. 1 Alabama (280) holds a two-stroke lead over No. 19 and host UCF (286). No. 3 California and No. 7 Illinois (284) are tied for third, while UNLV (286) rounds out the top five. The Razorbacks will return to the course on Monday at 7:50 a.m., going off the first tee alongside Illinois and UNLV.

Cappelen was the team’s low-man for the sixth time this year, while redshirt sophomore Kolton Crawford and sophomore Taylor Moore each supplied even-par 72s. Junior Thomas Sorensen and sophomore Nicolas Echavarria both shot 75. Cappelen’s bogey-free 68 comes on the heels of winning the Crooked Stick Intercollegiate, as he’s tied for fourth overall in the field of 75 players. He opened his day with a three-under 33 on the course’s back nine — his first nine — and went on to put together his fourth straight under-par round and eighth of the season.& Crawford and Moore carded two birdies in their final three holes to move into a tie for 23rd place. Moore was bogey-free in his opening nine holes with a two-under 34, while Crawford was under-par on the final nine holes.
