The Golf Channel Set to Highlight TCU Golf Programs
Jan. 27, 2004
FORT WORTH, Texas - The Golf Channel will pay a visit to TCU this Thursday, Jan. 29 to take a campus tour with freshman Camille Blackerby of the TCU women's golf team and sophomore Colby Beckstrom of the men's golf team. The footage, along with interviews with both golfers, will air on the show, "College Central," at a date and time to be determined.
Blackerby played in three of the Frogs' four events during the fall season, recording a stroke average of 75.44, which ranked second on the TCU squad. She had a pair of top-20 finishes, highlighted by a tie for 15th place at the Shootout at the Legends. The native of Breckenridge, Texas, posted a career-low round of 70 at the Legends.
Beckstrom completed one of the finest fall seasons in TCU history with a national individual ranking of sixth according to the Golfweek ratings system. He placed better than 12th in all four events during the campaign and recorded his first career victory at the Prestige at PGA West. A product of North Muskegon, Mich., Beckstrom shot better than 70 in five of his 12 fall rounds.
The pair will show off the TCU campus and the Horned Frogs' golf facilities to The Golf Channel's Steve Burkowski during a three-hour shoot in Fort Worth on Thursday morning. Last year, The Golf Channel debuted the 30-minute weekly show devoted to collegiate golf. It features host Jennifer Mills and Burkowski, who serves as an analyst. The next episode of "College Central" will air on Wednesday, Feb. 11 at 9:30 p.m. (CT).
