Nov. 24, 2003
EL PASO, Texas - TCU junior David Schultz resides in fourth place among 26 of the nation's top men's college golfers at the 29th Annual Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic at the El Paso Country Club in El Paso, Texas. After an outstanding first two rounds, Schultz, an honorable mention All-American in 2003, put himself into a position to become the second straight Horned Frog golfer to win the tournament title.
Schultz fired a two-round total of 136 (-6) on Monday. He recorded a four-under 67 in round one, then tallied a two-under 69 in the afternoon 18 holes. He is seven strokes behind Chris Nallen of Arizona, who set the 36-hole record for scoring with a 129 (66-63).
In the 2002-03 season, Schultz burst onto the TCU scene by winning two collegiate tournament titles, the Ridges Intercollegiate and the ASU Thunderbird Invitational. In addition, the native of Fargo, N.D., had two other finishes in the top 10. Schultz posted a 72.02 scoring average for the year and was a first-team All-Conference USA selection. He is the sixth TCU golfer ever to be selected to play in the All-America Classic. Former Horned Frog standout Adam Rubinson won the 2002 tournament title.
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: Ricky Barnes (2000), Notah Begay (1994), David Duval (1991), Davis Love III (1984), Jerry Pate (1974) and Tiger Woods (1995).
