Arkansas senior Sebastian Cappelen was named to Golfweek's all-American second team this week.
Cappelen, the 2013 SEC individual champion, is the first Razorbacks golfer to earn all-American honors four years in a row. He is a three-time PING all-American with the 2014 teams yet to be announced.
The all-American honor came less than 24 hours after Cappelen qualified for his first professional event. He will golf in the Web.com Tour's Air Capital Classic in Wichita, Kan. Cappelen finished ninth at the NCAA Championships in Hutchinson, Kan., last month.
