The Grass is Greener

The men’s and women’s golf teams have extremely high expectations for the upcoming season. With returning all-stars, as well as upcoming members, the future season for both golf teams at the UA is looking very bright.
With no graduating seniors or leaves from the past season, every member of the women’s golf team is retuning this next year, said Jeri Thorpe with media relations.
Keep an eye out for Emma Lavy, redshirt freshman last season. She was ranked 183 in Golfweek.com’s individual rankings and played in every event as a freshman, and also made the SEC All-Freshman Team.
Lavy also finished tied for 12th in her first SEC appearance. With an average score of 75.70 and a finishing percentage of 60.5%, it is safe to say to remember her name next season.
The men’s side of the field looks just as hot as the women’s side. This past season treated the men’s team with many gifted players, and next season all but one of the original lineup will be returning to dominate the course.
“The team has a pretty good core returning,” said Paul Pierce with media relations.
Sebastian Cappelen has an impressive record. He has had two wins in the past two seasons and a good stash of top ten finishes. He sports a scoring average of 71.99, and was re-invited to the European Palmer Cup this year.
Last year at the European Palmer Cup he took wins in the foursome and two single rounds, and this year he looks to have the same impressive results.
“Next year will be a really exciting year for men’s golf,” Pierce said, and with the past years stats and only losing one top member, most people will agree with that statement.
The world of Razorback sports will continue turning heads in the upcoming season.
