Razorback MGolf opens 2022-23 at Frederica Cup



FAYETTEVILLE – After back-to-back NCAA top-15 finishes, Arkansas’ men’s Razorback golf program will open the 2022-23 season against familiar openers but in a new location. The inaugural Frederica Cup, played at Frederica Golf Club in St. Simons Island, Georgia, is a 54-hole event that will feature 36 holes on Wednesday (September 7) and an 18-hole final on Thursday (September 8).

In each of the past eight seasons, Arkansas had opened its West Coast schedule at the Carmel Cup in Pebble Beach with four SEC teams and four Big 12 teams. This year, the eight-team field crosses the country until to the East Coast and will include the same SEC schools – Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi State and host Vanderbilt – while the remaining four teams include Carmel Cup regulars Oklahoma, TCU and Texas Tech with a newcomer and the State of Ohio.

While St. Simons Island has hosted the SEC Men’s Golf Championship since 2001, the championship is played at the nearby Sea Island Golf Club. However, the SEC Championship was contested at Frederica Golf Club in 2008 and 2009, with the Razorbacks finishing second in 2009.

The event, like the Carmel Cup, is a six time five event as opposed to the normal five time four.

The Razorback lineup returns four from last year’s ninth-place NCAA team, including Mateo Fernandez de Oliveira, Julian Perico, Segundo Oliva Pinto and Wil Gibson. Arkansas will welcome back Manuel Lozada, an All-SEC Freshman pick and 2021 NCAA team member who wore a redshirt last year due to injury, and transfer Christian Castillo will make his debut in the Razorback gear.
