Lady'Backs challenge themselves this summer

        FAYETTEVILLE -- A pair of University of Arkansas Lady Razorback golfers are enjoying their summer facing some of the world's best amateurs this week.
        Courtney Mahon and Stacy Lewis moved beyond collegiate golf with Mahon at the U.S. Women's Public Links in Williamsburg, Va., and Lewis trying her hand at the US. Women's Open Qualifier in Dallas, Texas.
        "Both of these young women are doing everything they can to challenge themselves and improve their game over the summer," said Arkansas head coach Kelley Hester. "The U.S. Public Links event is one of the top three amateur events in the country. It's a very prestigious event and I'm excited to see how Courtney handles the field."
        Mahon, who just completed her sophomore season with the Lady Razorbacks, began her week with a 138 in stroke play qualifying for the match play field of 64. Mahon made the cut against 753 golfers who started the week on the par 72, 6,159-yard course.
        Mahon's 138 score was good for third place and paired the Topeka, Kan., native against No. 62 Brianna Broderick in the match play tree on Thursday. The duo battled back and forth with Mahon having to come back after being two down early taking a one-up lead at the 12th hole.
        Mahon held on until the 14th hole when Broderick evened things up eventually taking the lead and eliminating the Lady'Back.
        Lewis, who redshirted her first season at Arkansas with an injury, seems to be recovered carding a 148 at the TPC Four Seasons in Dallas, Texas, this week. Her score missed the cut for the Women's U.S. Open by just two strokes.
        "It's great to see Stacy play that well," said Hester. "We knew she had that kind of golf in her when we recruited her and I'm very excited about what she will add to the team next season."
        Recaping other Lady Razorback golf news, Hot Springs, Ark., native Gena Johnson won the Arkansas state match play tournament in early June. Johnson also competed well falling the semifinals of the Women's Southern in Fort Smith.
