FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – In what has easily become the toughest field in all of college golf, the No. 18 Arkansas men’s golf team travels to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, March 4-6 to take part in the Querencia Cabo Collegiate.
The 2018 version of the Querencia Cabo Collegiate features 11 of top 30 teams in the country, including three of the top six programs in the nation. The three-day event runs from March 4-6 at the par 71, 6,928-yard Querencia Golf Club. Live scoring is available at Golfstat.com or via the Golfstat Live app.
The Razorbacks make their way to Mexico with a 64-20 (.761) head-to-head record on the year, including a handful of top five finishes in seven Tournaments. Arkansas captured a victory at the Gopher Invitational in the fall and followed it up with three runner-up finishes at the Bearcat Invite, Royal Oaks Intercollegiate and the Sea Best Invitational at TPC Sawgrass in the spring opener.
Arkansas will have a familiar lineup with Mason Overstreet leading the way in the top position with a 69.4 stroke average. Currently on watch lists for the Ben Hogan Award and the Fred Haskins Award, Overstreet is looking for his sixth top 20 finish of the year and second collegiate victory.
Senior Alvaro Ortiz will once again occupy the No. 2 spot in the lineup after a top 15 finish last time out at the Gator Invitational with two more rounds under par. He has a 69.9 stroke average and leads the team with 14 rounds under par this season.
The sophomore trio of Luis Garza, William Buhl and Tyson Reeder will round out the lineup, while Landon Ernst will compete as an individual for the third straight event.
Arkansas is playing in the Querencia Cabo Collegiate for the fourth straight season, with its best finish coming in 2014 at T-7th in the field of 14 teams.
