El Paso, TX - Washington junior All-American Brock Mackenzie shot even-par 71 during the final round to finish fourth in the 22-man field at the Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic at El Paso Country Club.
Mackenzie shot 1-over 214 for the 54-hole event, finishing six strokes behind medalist Adam Rubinson of Texas Christian. The TCU senior shot 2-under 69 on Tuesday to win the tournament by five strokes. Virginia Tech's Brendon De Jonge and Georgia's Ryan Hybl tied for second at 213.
