TCU's Rubinson Set to Compete at College All-America Golf Classic
Nov. 22, 2002
Twenty-four of the nation's elite men's college golfers will be in El Paso, Texas from Nov. 24-26 for the Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic. Included in the group is TCU senior Adam Rubinson, a 2002 honorable mention All-American and two-time all-conference performer. After a solid fall season, Rubinson is rated 19th in the most recent Golfweek college rankings.
The 28th annual golf tournament will also feature 2002 U.S. Amateur Champion and 2000 Golf Classic Champion Ricky Barnes (University of Arizona), as well as the defending Golf Classic Champion Brad Heaven (University of Toledo).
Throughout the years, many Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic competitors have gone on to pursue successful careers in the Professional Golfers' Association of America and on the PGA Tour. Some of the past champions include Notah Begay (1994), David Duval (1991), Davis Love III (1984), Jerry Pate (1974) and Tiger Woods (1995).
Each university is awarded a $1,000 scholarship if a golfer from that school competes in the tournament. The tournament, hosted by the Sun Bowl Association, is at El Paso Country Club (length: 6,781; slope: 133; rating: 71.3; par: 71).
A long drive and putting contest will take place on Sunday, and play will get underway on Monday, Nov. 25 at 7:30 a.m. The field will play 36 holes on Monday and the final 18 on Tuesday.
