March 11, 2013


SAN DIEGO—TCU finished the opening day of competition at the Lamkin Grips San Diego Classic in second place on the team leaderboard, three strokes back of leader San Diego State, following the opening two rounds of play at San Diego Country Club.

The Horned Frogs, rated ninth in the most recent release of the Golfweek/Sagarin national team rankings, will enter Tuesday’s final round at +1 overall, trailing only SDSU (-2), which fired a 4-under-par 284 in Round 2 to climb atop the team leaderboard. TCU shared the lead with UT Arlington after Round 1 thanks to a 1-under team total of 287. The squad has now owned at least a piece of the team lead in each of its five spring tournaments.

Two Frogs currently sit among the top-10 golfers on the individual leaderboard, as sophomore Julien Brun and senior Eli Cole share seventh place at -1. Brun fired a 1-over 73 in Round 1 before regrouping with a 2-under 70 in his second 18 holes. Cole opened the tournament with a 1-under 71 followed by a par 72.

TCU’s three other competitors all rank among the top-18 golfers. Senior Pontus Gad is tied for 13th (+2) after shooting 71 and 75, while freshman Paul Barjon and senior Daniel Jennevret are among a six-man group tied for 18th at +3 overall.

TCU concludes competition at the Lamkin Grips San Diego Classic on Tuesday with tee times off holes No. 1 and 10 scheduled to commence at 8 a.m. PDT.
