Razorbacks Ranked 19th in Final Fall Poll
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – After having an outstanding fall season the Arkansas golf team has been ranked 19th in the final fall poll by Golfweek/Sagarin. The Razorbacks were one of five Southeastern Conference teams to be ranked in the top 20. Florida was the SEC’s highest ranked school at No. 4. Georgia came in at 14th, with Vanderbilt and Tennessee at the 16th and 20th spots, consecutively.
During the fall season the Hogs tallied top-ten finishes at each of the three tournaments they competed in, with their best effort coming at the Gary Koch Intercollegiate in Tampa, Fla. They shot a score of 567 through two rounds to tie for second.
Junior Andrew Dahl has helped lead the Razorbacks with his low stroke average of 72.2 and the tournament victory he earned at the Stonebridge Invitational. Dahl was the first Arkansas golfer since Craig Lile in 2001 at the NCAA Regionals to finish first at a tournament.
The Razorbacks will kick off their spring season at the Taylor Made Intercollegiate in Kona, Hawaii on February 10-14. They have also added the Palensia Collegiate Invitational in St. Augustine, Fla., to the spring schedule to replace the Country Club of Louisiana Invitational that was rained out on October 27. The new tournament will be played on March 1-3.
