Razorbacks to play in All-American Invite

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — A trio of Razorback men’s golfers have been invited to play in the inaugural Patriot All-America Invitational at the Wigwam in Litchfield Park, Ariz., which begins on Wednesday, Dec. 28, and runs through Friday, Dec. 30. Juniors Austin Cook and Josh Eure and sophomore Sebastian Cappelen are part of an 84-player field which incorporates some of the best collegiate golfers in the nation. Some of the invitees to the event include PING All-Americans from all collegiate divisions, a member from each of the service academies as well as Palmer Cup team members and AJGA All-Americans among others. Hosted by the Arizona Golf Association, The Wigwam, the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) and the Folds of Honor Foundation, the event is scheduled for 54 holes. Every participant will be given a golf bag with the name and branch of service of a fallen military member to use for three days and at the conclusion of the event those bags will be auctioned with the proceeds going to the Folds of Honor Foundation. The foundation provides post-secondary educational scholarships for children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving. Arkansas’ trio is coming off a tremendous fall season and look to pick up where they left off. Cook had a good fall season with a stroke average of 73.13 and recorded Arkansas’ second best 54-hole score of the fall with a 207 at the Cabo Collegiate to finish second. Eure, who played himself into a spot on the travel squad after the first tournament, ranks second on the team in stroke average at 72.00 and had three top 20 finishes in four tournaments during the fall. Cappelen was Arkansas’ best player in 2010-11 and is off to another All-American year in 2011-12. He is averaging 72.40 per round and was the individual champion at the Cabo Collegiate.
