Nov. 30, 2013
EL PASO, Texas - TCU junior golfer Julien Brun carded a final-round 66 to earn a ninth-place showing among 21 of the nation's top collegiate golfers at the Sun Bowl Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic at the El Paso Country Club.
The All-America Golf Classic is one of the oldest tournaments in collegiate golf, where alumni of the event have gone on to earn 617 PGA Tour events. The field was comprised of 21 of the top collegiate players who have previously earned All-America honors.
After an opening-round 2-over 73, Brun bounced back later in the day by going 4-under on the final nine holes of the second round en route to a 2-under 69. The Antibes, France, native then made his way into the top ten by firing a 5-under 66, matching his previous season low, where he rolled in six birdies to just one bogey to tie for the second-highest round of the day.
Brun, who is currently tabbed No. 9 in the Scratch Players World Amateur Golf Ranking and No. 21 according to R&A, posted a successful fall tournament season for the Horned Frogs with two top-10 finishes.
Brun is the lone two-time First-Team All-American (PING) in program history and was a finalist for the 2013 Ben Hogan Award, given to the top men's player in college and amateur golf. Brun entered his junior season holding school records in stroke average (70.41) and tournament wins (6).
