TCU men will be on the course shortly at Harding Park in San Francisco for The Goodwin. You can get a feel for the muni that acts like a country club here and here.

Frogs will be without Gustav Frimodt, who is battling an injury. Frimodt has led TCU in scoring in every tournament this season. That's an amazing stat. Anyway, Frogs will have their hands full as they face a huge field with a bunch of good teams and some not-so-good teams (designed to help the better teams get their record over .500). TCU is playing out the hand its been dealt, but it's a pleasant place to do so.

TCU men moved up a spot on Friday and two more on Saturday thanks to a 69 and a pair of 70s. Couldn't quite track down Utah Tech for 27th place, however.

Hoge with a T14 in Houston. One of several highlights.

Johannes Veerman finishes T2 and Jeong Weon Ko T5 at the DP World Tour's event in Delhi, which features this amazing hole, the green benched into the quarry rocks above the railroad ties.

Also, a couple of former Frogs begin play today in the Augusta National Women's Amateur, which also poses the question of which is the better golf name--Annabelle Pancake or Asterisk Talley? Leaderboard

Only one shot separated the two today, but I wouldn't be surprised if Pancake's career fell flat. On the other hand, I think Asterisk will be a star.

Shoutout to the TCU women, who put together their best performance of the year at the Silverado Showdown in Napa. Frogs finished T7, but their 54-hole total of +14 beat third-ranked UCLA and 16th-ranked Oregon, and tied 7th-ranked Texas.

It was a total team effort, as no Frog finished in the top 20 but 4 of 5 players (Angosta, Lau, Winans, and Barroso Sa) finished in the top 30. Barroso Sa ran off six birdies in a row today.

Frogs needed something to build on late in the year, and they got it. Nice work!

TCU men are in action today for 36 holes at Finkbine Golf Course in Iowa City in the Hawkeye Invitational.

A previous version of the course, Old Finkbine, is famed as the location of my dad's lowest-ever round (65), as well as a possibly true story about a 500-yard drive aided by an adjacent road and a favorable redirection off a passing car.

TCU is the only school in the 16-team field not located in the greater Mississippi watershed. See how the Frogs do at https://results.golfstat.com//public/leaderboards/gsnav.cfm?pg=team&tid=29010.

Gustav Frimodt is still out with injury. I suspect that he is being careful in managing his position (currently 12th) in the PGA Tour University rankings. The top 20 seniors get a pass into PGA Tour Americas for the upcoming season. The top 10 get a pass onto the Korn Ferry Tour. Standings are based on average points, with a minimum divisor of 18. Gustav has played in 16 qualifying events, so he'll have an incentive to tee it up twice more, if able.

TCU men with their best round of the season Saturday morning in Iowa, shooting 67-68-68-71 for the first-round lead. May have been the best career rounds for Wilt, Beauchamp and Petruzzelli, but can't seem to confirm via stats at GoFrogs.com.

Frogs dropped back to T2 as a team after round 2, but they are within 5 shots of the lead and will have a shot at a team trophy for the first time in a while on Sunday. Beauchamp and Petruzzelli are both in the top 10. Encouraging!
