UA women's golf signs UNLV transfer

Arkansas women’s golf coach Shauna Taylor announced on Wednesday the signing of former UNLV player Kendall Todd.
She will have three seasons of eligibility remaining beginning in 2022-23.
“Kendall adds a lot of experience to our already deep roster,” Taylor said in a statement. “Depth is vital to a championship run and Kendall gives us another seasoned collegiate player to help us continue our success on and off the golf course.”
The Razorbacks, who ended last season at No. 19 in the final Golfweek rankings, could bring back all their players from a team that reached the NCAA championships.
Todd was one of two freshmen to earn second-team All-Mountain West honors last season, when she posted a 74.05 stroke average.
Todd, who will join Meghan Royal and Reagan Zibilski as Razorback newcomers, is scheduled to compete today in a USGA Women’s Amateur qualifier.
