FORT WORTH – Freshman men’s golfer Thomas Mantovanini has been named TCU Athlete of the Week after shooting 3-under-par overall this weekend at the NCAA Central Regional in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Mantovanini respectively shot scores of 70, 69, and an even-par 71 to earn a share of 11th place in the individual leaderboard at the tournament.  His performance marked the first time he finished a tournament under par as a Frog.  It was also his best performance to date, shattering his previous best of 3-over-par set back in April.

A native of Sao Palo, Brazil, Mantovanini arrived at TCU as a top-20 Brazilian amateur golfer after competing on the Brazilian junior and amateur circuits.  His finish this weekend helped earn TCU its third NCAA Championship berth in the last four seasons by finishing fifth place as a team.  This is the 16th time in program history the team has qualified for the NCAA Championship.

TCU will return to the links May 28-June 3 to compete for the NCAA Championship at historic Riviera Golf Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
