KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The Arkansas men’s golf team shot a 9-over-par round of 293 on Tuesday at the Coca-Cola Tournament of Champions to record a ninth-place finish in the season’s opening event.

Host school Tennessee claimed the team title on their home course with a tournament record 34-under par score of 818. The Volunteers won by 32 strokes over second place Alabama, who finished at 2-under-par 850.

The Vols Lloyd Campbell and Philip Pettitt shared medalist honors with a 12-under-par 201, also breaking the tournament record.

Hogs’ true freshman Jordan Payne from West Memphis, Ark., continues to impress after carding a 2-over-par 73 on Tuesday. His 4-over-par 217 for the tournament left him in a tie for 30th in his first event as a Razorback.

Junior Beau Glover shot his second straight 71 in the final round to finish in a tie for 36th at 5-over par for the tournament. Sophomore Barrett Lais’ final-round 74 left him in a tie for 44th (220). He carded rounds of 70 and 76 on Monday.

Sophomore Will Osborne shot a 77 in the final round and finished in a tie for 68th for the tournament. He shot an opening-round 76 on Monday morning and came back to shoot a solid 73 in the afternoon.
