Titleist Long Drive, PING Putting Contest Tee Off 2018 Sun Bowl Marathon All-America Golf Classic

The 2018 Sun Bowl Marathon All-America Golf Classic teed-off Sunday, November 18 with the Annual Titleist Long Drive and PING Putting competitions at the El Paso Country Club.

Louisville freshman Matthias Schmid hit the ball 331 yards down the fairway, into a breeze, to win the Titleist Long Drive Contest.  Schmid outdrove second place finisher, Mason Overstreet, a junior with Arkansas, by nine yards.

“It is always good to win a competition like this to build some confidence before a tournament,” Schmid said. “[We] played in our last tournament almost two weeks ago so I am looking forward to competing against these guys.”

Oklahoma junior Quade Cummins won the PING Putting Contest with a low round of 20 putts on a course that featured many obstacles, such as putting from a saddle.

The Weatherford, Ok. native finished two strokes ahead of Joshua Martin, a senior with North Carolina.  Three competitors finished in a

tie for third with 23 strokes.

“The putting contest was fun. I just tried to keep the ball in play,” said Cummins. “I am from a country town, so I’ve been on a saddle before.”

The Sun Bowl Marathon All-America Golf Classic continues at the El Paso Country Club with two rounds of golf set for Monday, Nov. 19 starting at 8 a.m. (MT). The final round is set for 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 20.

Some of golf’s biggest names have traveled to El Paso to participate in the tournament including Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson.

Alumni of the All-America Golf Classic have combined to win 52 golf majors and have earned over $2.12 billion in career earnings.

To be eligible for competition, student-athletes must have been named an All-American during the previous year. The U.S. Amateur Champion or Runner Up also qualifies if they still have collegiate eligibility.
