GARRETT REBAND Oklahoma After setting a school record with his 69.4 scoring average in 2020, Reband decided to return to the Sooners for 2020-21. Reband was a first-team All-American in 2020. Reband has rebounded nicely after breaking his hand last June. Three pins were placed in the bone and Reband couldn’t touch a club until August. He missed an entire summer of amateur competition, including the U.S. Amateur. When he returned to campus, Reband’s swing speed dip to 115 mph from the low-120s. A switch to arm-lock putting earlier this year has helped him. “Ever since, I’ve been rolling it the best I ever have in college,” he told GolfChannel. com after winning the National Invitational Tournament in March.
