— Arkansas golfers Taylor Moore and Sebastian Cappelen tied for third, each posting a 4-under 206, in the Patriot All-America Invitational in Litchfield, Ariz. on Tuesday.

Cappelen shot a 4-under 67 in the final round and Moore shot a 3-under 68. The Razorback golfers finished one stroke behind Air Force's Kyle Westmoreland and Texas' Toni Hakula, who tied for first in regulation.

Thomas Lim of Oregon also tied for third with the Razorback duo.

Cappelen was tied for the lead after the front nine holes and was tied for the lead again after a birdie on hole 12.

Moore birdied on the 14th hole to join Cappelen atop the leaderboard. Both Razorback golfers hit a bogey on the 16th hole, however, and Westmoreland and Hakula took advantage of it. Westmoreland birdied on hole 18 and Hakula birdied on both 17 and 18 to rally and tie for the lead.

Westmoreland won the invitational by beating Hakula on the 6th hole in a sudden-death playoff.
