Seattle - Washington senior golfer Brock Mackenzie will conclude his fall season this week at the 29th Annual Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic in El Paso. The 54-hole tournament, hosted by the Sun Bowl Association, begins play Monday at 7:30 a.m. at the par-71, 6,781-yard El Paso Country Club. The first day of play includes 36 holes of competition followed by a final round on Tuesday.
This year's tournament features seven Palmer Cup players and three Walker Cup players, as well as 2001 Golf Classic Champion Brad Heaven from Toledo. Heaven, Mackenzie, Jason Hartwick (Texas) and Chris Nallen (Arizona) are making their third straight appearance in the event.
Last year Mackenzie placed fourth at the tournament, shooting 1-over 214.
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), Matt Kuchar (1999), 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.
