FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Just over two days away from making its fourth appearance at the NCAA Championships in the last six years, the Arkansas men’s golf team came in at No. 12 in the latest Golfstat rankings released on Wednesday.
The move is a 12-spot jump for the Razorbacks who took second at the NCAA Columbia Regional last weekend with a three-day score of 28-under par. Arkansas will enter the start of the NCAA Championships as the No. 11 seed, playing alongside Houston and UAB the first two rounds. The trio is set to tee off at Prairie Dunes CC on Friday at 1:30 p.m. on the 10th tee.
For the first time since the first month of the fall, Arkansas will sport a lineup of senior Sebastian Cappelen, sophomore Taylor Moore, redshirt sophomore Kolton Crawford, sophomore Nicolas Echavarria and senior Blake Biddle. Cappelen will make his third appearance at the NCAA Championships while Moore and Echavarria were also part of last year’s 10th place finish. They were Arkansas’ top three finishers last year.
Cappelen and Moore also climbed Golfstat’s rankings on Wednesday, moving up to No. 14 and No. 67, respectively, in the individual rankings. The quartet of Cappelen, Moore, Crawford and Echavarria combined to go 28-under par at last weekend’s NCAA Columbia Regional to all finish in the top 11.
Arkansas is one of 10 SEC teams that make up one-third of the field of 30 teams at the NCAA Championships.
