ANTALYA, Turkey—Three members of the TCU men’s golf team have traveled to Antalya, Turkey, to represent their home nations in the 2012 World Amateur Team Championship this Thursday through Sunday. Senior Daniel Jennevret will compete for Sweden, while sophomore Julien Brun and freshman Paul Barjon will play for France.

The World Amateur Team Championship is a four-day team event featuring three-man teams from 72 countries competing for the prestigious Eisenhower Trophy, named in honor of United Stats President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The tournament schedule will feature 72 holes of stroke play with 18 holes played on each of the four days. In each round, the total of the two lowest scores by players from each team constitutes the team score for that round. The four-day total is the team’s score for the championship.

All players participating in this week’s event must be amateur golfers under the Rules of Amateur Status of either The R&A or the United States Golf Association. Players must be citizens of the country represented.

Two courses will be featured at the 2012 World Amateur Team Championship, with teams playing two rounds at each location: Cornelia Golf Club and Antalya Golf Club.

TCU is one of a select few college programs featuring multiple student-athletes competing in this week’s event. The Frogs, along with Texas, will be the only college programs featuring three golfers in action.

Following this weekend’s international event, TCU will return to its regular schedule when it closes out the fall season Oct. 21-23 at the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational in Windmere, Fla.
