LAREDO, Texas – Senior Dalton Owens led the Arkansas Razorback men’s golf team to a sixth-place finish at the Border Olympics in Laredo, Texas, on Saturday afternoon after shooting a final round 75 at the Laredo Country Club.
Owens finished the two-day, three-round competition eight-over par for a tie for eighth overall. It is his first time leading Arkansas this season. As a team the Razorbacks were 24-over-par, 12 strokes off the pace of Texas State who led the way with a final score of 876. Oklahoma finished second with a final score of 880 followed by Lamar, 881, UT-Arlington, 882, and Auburn, 883.
Sophomore Ethan Tracy was Arkansas’ No. 2 finisher individually ending in a tie for 25th. Tracy did not have his best day on Saturday, shooting a final round 79, but still finished the competition as one of the best in terms of birdies as he finished with 12 over the 54 holes of competition.
Arkansas’ team leaders and seniors Jamie Marshall and David Lingmerth each improved their rounds from the first day by shooting identical 75s. Marshall completed the competition at eight-over par and in a tie for 28th. Lingmerth’s final round led to a three-round total 227, 11-over-par and tied for 41st overall.
Austin Cook matched Lingmerth’s score total at 227, shooting a final round 77. Josh Eure, competing as an individual, finished the competition at nine-over-par and in a tie for 35th. Eure’s score did not count toward Arkansas’ final team score because of his individual status.
The Razorbacks return to the course on March 12-13 at the Seminole Intercollegiate at the Golden Eagles Country Club in Tallahassee, Fla.
