2019 SUN BOWL MARATHON ALL-AMERICA GOLF CLASSIC OPENS WITH THE TITLEIST LONG DRIVE AND PING PUTTING CONTESTS

EL PASO, Texas – The 2019 Sun Bowl Marathon All-America Golf Classic teed-off Sunday, Nov. 24 with the annual Titleist Long Drive and PING Putting competitions at the El Paso Country Club.

RJ Manke (amateur status: junior at Pepperdine) hit the ball 354 yards down the fairway on a calm and sunny morning in El Paso, Texas to win the Titleist Long Drive Contest. Manke outdrove second place finisher Jack Trent (amateur status: junior at UNLV) by seven yards. Third place finisher, Ludvig Aberg (amateur status: freshman at Texas Tech) hit the ball 344 yards.

“I wasn’t really nervous when I got up there to hit the ball,” Manke said when asked if it was nerve racking hitting the ball in front of the crowd. “Having the people there on the bleachers made for a great atmosphere.”

Adrien Dumont de Chassart won the PING Putting Contest with a low of 17 putts on a course that featured many obstacles, such as putting from a saddle. The Villers la Ville, Belgium native finished one stroke ahead of Michael Feagles (amateur status: senior at Illinois) and Peter Kuest (amateur status: senior at BYU) both finishing in a tie for second with 18 strokes. A total of 10 player finished the putting contest with 20 or fewer strokes.
