Arkansas graduate senior Tyson Reeder birdied on his final hole to take home a share of the Tiger Invitational at the Grand National Lake Course in Opelika, Alabama, March 15-17. As a team, the Razorbacks finished seventh out of 15.
“I knew I was playing well so I just made the commitment to keep trusting my game,” Reeder said in an interview after the tournament. “I knew if I parred the last 3 holes, I would give myself a chance to win the tournament. I just tried to stay in the present. I bogeyed my second hole, and I knew I had to make a birdie on the last.”
Reeder went 10-under-par for the tournament and tied with Georgia senior Davis Thompson. Reeder is the 13th Hog to win multiple events, previously winning Nebraska's Git-R-Done Invitational in 2019 at 2-under-par in 36 holes.
“Tyson has improved each year and continues to trend in the right direction,” Arkansas head coach Brad McMakin said. “He puts in extremely hard work and I couldn’t be prouder of this huge accomplishment.”
No. 16 Auburn won the overall event with -26. Arkansas went -9, beating No. 20 Tennessee, No. 23 Arkansas State and No. 6 Texas A&M.
Junior Julian Perico tied for 13th overall with a score of -4. In the final round, he went up five spots to secure a seven-way tie.
Graduate seniors William Buhl and Mason Overstreet tied for 46th with a 4-over par. Buhl went two straight rounds at even-par that helped him climb 11 spots in the final round.
Junior Segundo Oliva Pinto went 1-under par in the final round. He went +5 in the tournament and settled for tie at 56th.
Freshman Manuel Lozada placed 82nd with +15.
The Razorback men’s golf club will head to West Point, Mississippi, to take part in Mississippi State’s Old Waverly Collegiate. The event will take place from Friday, March 26 through Sunday, March 28 at the Old Waverly Golf Club.
