The No. 16 Arkansas men’s golf team shot a 2-over 286 on Tuesday to tie for 10th at the Valspar Collegiate tournament in Palm City, Fla.

The Razorbacks were 25 shots off the pace of No. 1 Oklahoma State, which shot 5 over Tuesday to wind up at 12 under after building a huge lead through two rounds on the 7,114-yard, par-71 layout at the Floridian National Golf Club.

No. 23 Florida State finished second at 7 under, followed by No. 2 Texas A&M (2 under), No. 3 Georgia Tech (even), and No. 9 Baylor (2 over) and No. 37 Duke (2 over), who tied for fifth.

The Razorbacks were led by sophomore Luis Garza, whose 71 on Tuesday moved him up eight spots into a tie for 23rd at 2 over, 15 strokes behind medalist Viktor Hovland of Oklahoma State. Arkansas sophomore Mason Overstreet, last year’s NCAA runner up, was one shot behind Garza at 3 over. Senior Alvaro Ortiz carded a 4-over 217 to tie for 31st along with sophomore William Buhl. Freshman Landon Ernst closed with a 1-over 72 to finish tied for 66th at 13 over and sophomore Tyson Reeder tied for 85th at 24 over.
