After thinking that his career was over at FGCU, senior Brandon Pena got one more shot, and this time it was at the national level.
Pena was one of 10 individuals who competed in the Athens region for a shot at the national championship.
“I’m proud of Brandon for all of his hard work throughout his four years at FGCU, and it’s exciting to see it all pay off in a chance to play for a National Championship on the individual level,” head coach Brent Jensen said. “It’s also great for our program to make a mark in the postseason during our first year of eligibility. I’m really looking forward to sharing this experience with Brandon.”
Pena finished tied for 26th place after shooting a 74-73-71 for a total of 218.
Pena finishes second all-time in the FGCU record books in rounds played, par or lower rounds, counting scores (90) and third with a 73.2 scoring average.
