Andrew Landry of Groves was tied through three rounds of the Club Colombia Championship golf tournament, but a tough final round cost him a second straight victory.

Landry stumbled to a 4-over 75 Sunday, dropping him down to a 17th place tie at the tour stop in Bogota, Colombia. He finished at 7-under 277, tied with three others.

Among Landry’s struggles was a triple bogey on the par-4 No. 17. Avoiding that alone would have put him in a tie for sixth.

Landry’s University of Arkansas roommate, Ethan Tracy, shot a 65 and beat Mexico’s Roberto Diaz on the second playoff hole with a 20-footer to win. They also roomed together during the tournament.

It marked the second time since 1996 two golfers from the same college or university won back-to-back events on the developmental tour for the PGA.

Tracy’s $126,000 for winning in Bogota allowed him to surpass Landry’s $118,150 on’s money list. It was the fourth start on the tour for Tracy, 27.
