TCU Qualifies for Final Round of Stroke Play


May 31, 2015


BRADENTON, Fla. - The TCU men's golf team carded its best round of the NCAA Championship in Sunday's third round and will advance to the final 18 holes of stroke play on Monday as the field shrinks to 15 teams at The Concession Golf Club. The Golf Channel will begin its coverage at 11:30 a.m., CDT.

The Horned Frogs turned in a 3-over 291 to close play in 10th overall. Play at the NCAA Championship was suspended on Sunday due to weather with nine teams wrapping up their third round, which will resume at 6 a.m., CDT on Monday. The final round of stroke play will begin no earlier than 9 a.m., CDT.

The 15 teams to advance to the final round of stroke play will be vying for a spot in the final eight, which will then move into a match play format on Tuesday. With TCU advancing, the Horned Frogs have now earned a top-15 finish at the NCAA Championship for the seventh time in program history and the first since 2009.

"This is a big deal for us and I'm extremely proud of how our guys have competed in tough conditions," TCU head coach Bill Montigel said. "I'm excited about getting back out there and making a run at the final eight."

Julien Brun led the charge on Sunday with a 2-under 70, marking his 10th-career sub-par round in NCAA play. Brun made the turn at 2-under and went even par on the back nine.

Paul Barjon registered a 1-under 71 and came up in the clutch on the back nine, going 3-under on his final three holes. The junior made the turn at 2-over and remained there with three holes to play when he snagged an eagle and birdied on his final hole. With his eagle on the 7th, Barjon tied Adam Rubinson's school record with his 16th-career eagle.

Andrew Presley turned in another stellar effort with an even-par 72 as he sits in 12th overall, while Chelso Barrett (78) and Giulio Castagnara (80) rounded out the scoring.
