Tournament host, Ole Miss rose from sixth place at the end of the first day to finish in fourth with a 38-over 902(311-303-288).“Our play at the tournament was pretty good, not great, but we had some tough days out there with the bad weather rolling in; we experienced high winds and cold temperatures,” head coach Brad McMakin stated. “We had a chance to win this one and obviously came up a little short, but things are improving and we did a good job on a difficult course.”Senior Razorback Andrew Landry managed the individual title to be the only one at the event to finish under par with a 1-under 215(72-72-71), edging out the former tournament leader, Vanderbilt’s Adam Hofmann by three strokes.Freshman Ethan Tracy made a jump in the final round from a tie in 20th place to a tie in 10th with an 11-over 227(77-76-74). The place was shared between three other golfers, including 2008 medalist Zack Sucher of UAB, who shot a 227(74-76-77).Jason Cuthbertson of Arkansas also made a dramatic jump in the final round from a tie in 29th to a tie in 14th, after firing a 73 in the third round to produce a 12-over 228(74-81-73) overall. Following by only a single stroke, David Lingmerth moved from a tie in 25th to a tie in 18th to end 229(76-78-75). Allen McFerran was a stroke behind at a tie for 22nd with a score of 230(75-76-79).“We have Landry playing better for us, with Tracy adding some good performances to the team,” McMakin said. “Jason Cuthbertson and Allen McFerran both contributed a couple good rounds.” The Razorbacks next appear at the SEC Championship April 17-19, in St. Simon Island, Ga. “We are playing well as a team, and have our confidence up, and we are looking forward to next week for the SEC, with a chance to win it,” McMakin added.
