DALLAS-Frost delayed what would have been the most impressive win of the University of Arkansas men’s golf season thus far. The Razorbacks were set to take the win from Texas A&M, but it all unraveled on the final hole of tournament play at the Baylor Invitational at the Royal Oaks Country Club on Tuesday.

David Lingmerth double bogied the hole while Andrew Landry tripled it. For Landry, it would have meant the individual win. “This one was a hard one for us to take. It all came down to the last hole for us. Both Landry and Lingmerth hit trees and went out of bounds,” head coach Brad McMakin lamented

Further salting in the wounds of these Razorbacks the hole was one was McMakin considers an easy hole. “It was one of those things that might happen one in a hundred times, but unfortunately it happened for both those guys. That’s the way it goes sometimes.”

The Razorbacks finished the tournament in fourth place with a 21-over 873(291-297-285). Texas A&M took the win by only three strokes under the Hogs.

While the team is having a hard time in coping with this loss, McMakin points out, “Every week we are getting better, playing better, and we played well. We made a really good run at it today.”

And the Razorbacks did play well. Andrew Landry ended at a tie for fourth place at just 1-over. Lingmerth tied for 15th with a 7-over 220(73-75-72). Ethan Tracy jumped nine spots on the leaderboard to end at a 10-over 223(77-76-70). Jamie Marshall brought in 12-over 225(70-81-74). Jason Cuthbertson made what McMakin calls a “nice contribution” with a 226(80-76-70).

McMakin and his team are brushing this off their shoulders and are looking ahead to their next and final tournament of the fall. "We will be ready, " McMakin assures.

The team will briefly return to the fall foliage of the Ozarks before setting back out on the road for the Corde Valle Collegiate Nov. 3.
