Landry Named Honorable Mention All-American

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – For the second time in his Razorback career, Andrew Landry was named to the PING honorable mention All-American team as announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America. Landry becomes the eighth two-time All-American in Arkansas golf history, and the first since Craig Lile was honored in 2000 and 2001.

Landry led the Razorbacks with a 72.83 scoring average over the course of 12 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 12 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. Landry carded a season-low 54-hole total, an eight-under-par 208, at the John A. Burns Intercollegiate in Wahiawa, Hawaii. His low round of the season came with a two-under-par 68 in the second round of the Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic in October.

Landry also earned second-team All-Southeastern Conference recognition, the second all-conference honor for the Razorback junior, and was one of 15 golfers named to the PING All-South Central Region team.

He finished the season ranked No. 50 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index. In 26 career events played as a Razorback, Landry has posted a 72.50 scoring average and totaled 16 top-10 finishes.
