Landry Finishes Tied for Third Among Nation?s Best at All-America Golf Classic

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Junior Andrew Landry fired a final-round, three-under-par 68 Tuesday to capture a share of third place at the 33rd Annual Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic in El Paso, Texas. Landry carded a career-best 204 and finished nine under par at the 54-hole invitational event.

Landry’s 204 stroke total beats his previous career-low score of 208 which he last shot at the John A. Burns Intercollegiate during the 2006-07 season. This marks the first time Landry has shot three rounds in the 60s at the same event.

The Port Neches, Texas, native enjoyed success on the back nine over the two-day tournament. In the final round, he birdied five holes on the back nine. Landry birdied holes 11, 13 an 16 in each round of the Golf Classic. He finished the event as the top Southeastern Conference performer.

Landry tied Florida State’s Jonas Blixt and Oklahoma State’s Trent Leon for third place at nine under par, six shot behind tournament champion Webb Simpson from Wake Forest. The 28-golfer field featured 14 players from ten of the nation’s top-20 teams.

This event marked the end of the fall season of competition for the Razorback golf team. Arkansas will return to action when it begins the spring portion of its schedule Feb. 20-22 at the John A. Burns Intercollegiate in Wahiawa, Hawaii. Log on to www.hogwired.com for continued coverage of Razorback golf.
