Hogs eliminated at NCAAs
Arkansas golf coach Brad McMakin talks with Taylor Moore during the first round of the NCAA Championships on Friday, May 27, 2016, at Eugene Country Club in Eugene, Ore.
Arkansas shot an 18-over 298 Monday and was likely eliminated from the NCAA Golf Championships at Eugene (Ore.) Country Club.
The Razorbacks finished in 12th place at 33-over for the tournament. Only the top eight teams advanced to Tuesday's final round.
Arkansas' round Monday was the worst of the day among the 13 teams remaining. The Razorbacks had 25 bogeys and six double-bogeys to only 13 birdies.
After leading Arkansas the first three rounds, Charles Kim and Kolton Crawford each finished their final rounds with an 8-over 78. Taylor Moore shot 2-over in the final round.
The Razorbacks were tied for first place following the first round Friday, but their score increased by at least two strokes each of the final three rounds.
