FAYETTEVILLE – The Razorback men’s golf team returns to the links on Friday morning when they participate in the Seminole Intercollegiate in Tallahassee, Fla., against a solid field of 14 teams on the Southwood Golf Course.
Arkansas played at the Seminole last season, finishing tied for fifth in a 12-team field, but the 2010 version will be played on a new course which Arkansas’ players and coaches have yet to see.
"We are eager to get back out on the course," Arkansas head coach Brad McMakin said. "We didn’t like the way that we played last weekend at the Border Olympics, so getting right back out should be good for us."
Senior Dalton Owens was Arkansas’ top finisher a week ago and the Mount Vernon, Mo., native is playing his best golf as of late giving the Hogs four very capable players of challenging for individual medalist honors with David Lingmerth, Jamie Marshall and Ethan Tracy. Lingmerth is Arkansas’ team leader in stroke average and has shot at or below par in four of his eight tournaments this season.
Along with Arkansas and the host Florida State, Baylor, Cincinnati, George Mason, Georgia State, Mercer, Mississippi State, North Carolina, North Texas, South Carolina, Troy, Vanderbilt and Western Carolina are scheduled to compete in three rounds over three days. The Southwood Golf Course is configured to play as a par 72, 7,172 yards course for the collegiate tournament.
