TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – With the thoughts of its come-from-behind victory fresh on its mind, the 17th-ranked University of Arkansas men’s golf team travels to Tallahassee, Fla., to play in the Seminole Intercollegiate at the Southwood Golf Club, March 11-13. The Seminole Intercollegiate, hosted by Florida State, will include an 18-team field on the par 72, 7,172-yard course which was named the 25th best public course in the state of Florida by Golf Magazine.
Arkansas got inspired play from junior Ethan Tracy and freshman Will Pearson in its last tournament, while freshman Sebastian Cappelen continues to lead the Razorbacks in stroke average with an all-American pace 71.95 strokes per round.
"I thought that we played very well on the final day of our last tournament," Arkansas head coach Brad McMakin said. "Ethan and Will were unbelievable and Sebastian continued to play steady. This will be the largest field that we have faced this season, but not the toughest, so we just need to go out and play our game in some tough conditions."
The Razorbacks start competition at the Seminole with Houston and Mississippi State on the first team beginning at 8 a.m. central. The Southwood Golf Club is known for its wind, conditions that Razorbacks became accustomed to in winning the John Hayt Invitational just a week ago. Weather forecasts in Tallahassee over the next three days call for sunny skies with temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s.
Along with the Razorbacks, Host Florida State, Houston and Mississippi State, teams scheduled to compete at the Seminole include: Cincinnati, Florida A&M, Florida Atlantic, Georgia State, Jacksonville, James Madison, Kennesaw State, Mt. St. Mary’s, Nicholls State, North Carolina, UNC-Charlotte, North Texas, South Florida and Troy.
