Men’s Golf announces schedule

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Eleven regular season events with plans for a return to the postseason highlight the 2009-10 University of Arkansas men’s golf schedule. Head coach Brad McMakin and the Razorbacks come off an NCAA runner-up finish, and return three golfers from that team. They face a challenging schedule as they prepare for another run this year. “We return the core of our team, but losing a three-time All-American in Andrew Landry will be very tough to replace,” said head coach Brad McMakin. “We expect to get better by the spring by getting our young players experience this fall. I’m excited with our talent and expect to be very competitive by the end of the year. I think we have a chance to win the SEC and compete again for a National Championship.” The Razorbacks open Sept. 13-14 at the Fifth Annual Gopher Invitational in Wayzatta, Minn. Arkansas next travels to the Wolverine at Radrick Farms Sept. 26-27,a new event for the Razorbacks. Three events will keep Arkansas busy in October. Arkansas opens at the Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic, an event the Razorbacks won last season. Trips to Birmingham, Ala., for the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate, and to Dallas, Texas, for the Baylor Intercollegiate wrap up the fall. The Razorbacks break for the winter, but return with a full schedule extending from February through May. Arkansas travels to New Port Beach, Calif., for the Battle at the Beach hosted by UCLA in their spring opener. March features three events with Arkansas taking part n the Border Olympics in Laredo, Texas, the Seminole Intercollegiate in Tallahassee, Fla., and the Oregon Duck Invitational in Junction City, Ore. The regular season wraps up at the Morris Williams Intercollegiate in Austin, Texas. It serves as the final warm-up before the Razorbacks begin the postseason at the SEC Championship April16-18, in St. Simon Island, Ga. Arkansas was the SEC runner-up in 2009. May opens with the NCAA Regional Championships followed by the NCAA Championship June 2-5, at The Honors Course in Chattanooga, Tenn.
