FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The No. 18 Arkansas men’s golf team returns to action on Monday, traveling to the Southern Intercollegiate at Athens Country Club in Athens, Georgia.
The one day 36-hole event, hosted by the University of Georgia, is the largest regular season tournament Arkansas will play in this season. The Razorbacks are the highest ranked team in the field at No. 18, followed by No. 19 Florida State.
Head coach Brad McMakin’s squad is making its third consecutive appearance at Athens Country Club, recording a runner-up finish in 2016 and finishing fourth in 2017 for a combined head-to-head record of 23-4 at the event.
The Razorbacks will tee it up for the fourth time during the spring season, as they go for their sixth top five finish of the year. Arkansas faced the toughest field in college golf last week at the Querencia Cabo Collegiate, finishing ahead of five top-25 teams and knocking two of the top five programs in the nation.
Coming off his best performance of the year in Cabo, senior Alvaro Ortiz returns to the No. 1 spot in the lineup. He finished T-3rd at the Southern Intercollegiate a year ago at 5-under. Luis Garza has fond memories of Athens as well, posting a top 10 finish last year with back-to-back rounds under par.
Live scoring will be available at Golfstat.com or via the Golfstat Live app.
