FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas men’s golf team participates in its final regular season competition of the season, Monday and Tuesday, April 6-7, at the Morris Williams Intercollegiate in Austin, Texas. Arkansas is one of 15 schools to compete in the tournament and hopes to repeat the success it had a year ago.
Hosted at the University of Texas Golf Club in Austin, Texas, Arkansas is set to face a very good field which includes Texas, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, TCU, Kansas State, LSU, Texas Tech, Baylor, UTSA, Georgia, Pepperdine, SMU, New Mexico and Tulsa. The Morris Williams is a 54-hole tournament which begins on Monday at 8:30 a.m. with 36 holes and concludes on Tuesday with 18. The University of Texas Golf Club is hosting the event for the third consecutive season and this is the 12th annual Morris Williams Intercollegiate.
The Razorbacks are scheduled to bring six golfers to the competition, the same lineup it has carried to several competitions this season. Led by senior David Lingmerth, the Razorbacks also have seniors Jamie Marshall and Dalton Owens on the travel squad along with sophomore Ethan Tracy and freshmen Austin Cook and Josh Eure. Five of the six Razorbacks in Austin will count towards Arkansas’ team scoring while one will play as an individual.
Last season the Razorbacks finished second to Oklahoma State in an 18-team field. Lingmerth finished fourth overall with a three-round score of 218, five-over par. Tracy and former Razorback Jason Cuthbertson each tied for ninth in the individual standings at nine-over par while former Razorback Andrew Landry rounded out the scoring four. Marshall started the competition but was unable to finish to an injury.
