    After a record-setting opening round at The Goodwin in Stanford, California, the TCU Men’s Golf team earned its fifth top-five finish of the season.

    Three Horned Frogs carded sub-70 rounds to close out a strong final round at Stanford. All three placed in the top 20.

    Senior Andrew Presley led the Frogs on the final round carding a 3-under 67, matching his second lowest round of the season. Presley carded a career low 5-under 65 in the first round on Thursday.

    In his final round, Presley eagled the 539 yard par-5 seventh hole and rolled in three birdies on the back nine with only one miscue. This was good enough to earn the senior a tie for 19th place and his fourth top-20 finish of the season.

    Senior Julien Brun also had an outstanding tournament. The three-time All-American earned his second top-10 finish of the season and closed play with a 2-under 68. Brun carded four birdies against two bogeys on the final round and tied for sixth overall.

    Sophomore Giulio Castagnara earned his fifth top-30 placement on the season by having a strong final round in which he carded a 2-under 68. Rolling in three birdies on the front nine and having a clean back nine helped the sophomore tie for 24th place.

    Sophomore Chelso Barrett had two birdies and only one bogey on the back nine to score a 2-over 72 and tie for 39th place.

    Junior Paul Barjon earned his fourth top-20 finish of the season by carding a 4-over 74 in the final round as well as a 5-under 65 after day one. He tied for 20th place.

    The team will be back on the course when they travel to University Place, Washington for the Redhawks Invitational on April 7.
