Men’s golf travels to Windon Memorial

SKOKIE, Ill. — Less than a week from its last tournament, the No. 8 University of Arkansas men’s golf team travels to Skokie, Ill., to play in the Windon Memorial Classic at Evanston Golf Club. The 54-hole event features 17 teams and begins with a 36-hole day on Sunday, Oct. 16, concluding with 18 holes on Monday, Oct. 17. The Razorbacks finished sixth in their last outing, the Jack Nicklaus Invitational, against the best field it had faced this season. While the Windon field isn’t quite as strong, it does showcase the host Northwestern, No. 22 UCLA, Michigan, Purdue, Penn State and Indiana among others. Arkansas’ lineup for the Windon Memorial includes senior Ethan Tracy, juniors Austin Cook and Josh Eure, sophomore Sebastian Cappelen and freshmen Kolton Crawford. The quintet is playing in their third tournament of the fall and has one team victory with a pair of top five individual finishes. In two tournaments this year, Eure is Arkansas’ stroke average leader at 72.67. He finished second at the Golfweek Conference Challenge with a score of six-under par, and then tied for 29th at the Jack Nicklaus Invitational at 10-over par. Tracy has also had a terrific fall with a stroke average of 73.11 and two top five individual finishes. He finished fifth at the Gopher Invitational and tied for fifth at the Jack Nicklaus. Arkansas is scheduled to tee off at 8:30 a.m. with players from Northwestern, Harvard and UCLA on Sunday morning. The Evanston Golf Club is a par 70 course designed by Donald Ross. The 94-year-old course was redesigned in 2006 and is hosting the Windon Memorial Classic for the first time in the event’s 14-year history.
