FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — A golf magazine has included two Arkansas golfers on its list of 50 players to watch in the upcoming season.

Senior Ethan Tracy and sophomore Sebastian Cappelen are part of Golf World's college season preview.

Tracy had a good summer, winning the prestigious Western Amateur on Aug. 6. After making the match play field, he went on to beat Derek Ernst, Jordan Spieth, Cheng-Tsung Pan and Patrick Cantlay to capture the title.

Cappelen won the Seminole Intercollegiate and posted a school record tournament score of 17-under par at the Border Olympics. He earned a spot on the European squad at the Palmer Cup, and went on to win three of his four matches.

The Razorbacks begin their season on Sunday at the Gopher Invitational in Wayzata, Minn.
