Bishops Gate Golf Academy (BGGA) alumni Julian Perico continues his climb since recently graduating from BGGA. Golfweek named Perico #4 in the Preseason Top 10 Freshman in Men’s college golf. Perico is a freshman on the Arkansas Razorbacks team.
At the recent Gopher Invitational, Arkansas Razorbacks climbed to finish 4th led by Perico. Perico, who was in second in the clubhouse after his final round was completed, shot a 4-under-par 67 in the final round to post a total of 209 finish in fourth – an improvement of five places after two rounds Sunday.
“Julian has been great for us at both events but this week he showed why he’s one of the best incoming freshmen in the country,” said Arkansas head coach Brad McMakin. “He is proving he can compete at the highest level.”
Perico tied for the second-best round, shooting a 4-under 67, to finish fourth (68-74-67=209). Although he led the field with 28 pars over the first two rounds, Perico was strong in the birdie department Monday, carding seven, to make his move. He finished with 37 pars, the third-best total. The rookie has shot par of better six times in nine rounds with three rounds in the 60’s (67, 68 and 67).
Awesome job Julian!
