Landry opens pro career in Ft Smith

FAYETTEVILLE — Less than a month after leading the charge to put the University of Arkansas men’s golf team within a stroke of the 2009 NCAA Championship, former Razorback Andrew Landrey begins his professional career today in Fort Smith, Ark.

The Fort Smith Classic presented by Stephens, Inc., is a Nationwide Tour event at Hardscrabble Country Club. Landrey tees off this morning on the back nine at 9:15 a.m.

It was Landry who rallied from four holes down with five to play at the 2009 NCAA against Texas A&M that brought the Razorbacks to the final shot on the final green of match play. A 45-foot miracle shot from the rough allowed the Aggies to hold Landry and the Razorbacks off.

The All-American will have a gallery of local Razorback fans following. For those that cannot attend, scoring from the Fort Smith Classic is available here, along with the official website of the tournament here.
