Team GGGA pro Rodolfo Cazauban fired a 3-under 69 in the third round at the First Stage of European Tour Q School to take a three-shot lead heading into tomorrow’s final round.
Cazauban, of Mexico, posted birdies on three of the final four holes (Nos. 15, 16 and 18) to secure his spot at the top of the leaderboard with one round to go in Ebreichsdorf, Austria.
The top 22 and ties at Q School move onto the second stage at Ebreichsdorf.
Cazauban attended the Post Graduate Program at the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy in 2009 prior to joining the team at the University of North Texas and routinely makes visits back to GGGA to work with the coaching team.
Just last week, before heading to Austria, Cazauban spent the week creating a game plan and building confidence by preparing mentally and working on short game with his coach Txema Sanchez at GGGA.
“No matter what happens, tomorrow is just another day,” said Sanchez, who also coaches Cazauban as a Post Graduate student at GGGA. “Rodolfo has a good future ahead of him. Before the event, it was really our goal to create a solid support system for him as he prepares for his professional career, and he’s on a good track.”
Cazauban finished up his senior year at North Texas in May and earned several accolades in the process. He became the first player from North Texas to be named an All-American when Golfweek named him an honorable mention. This past year, Cazauban recorded three wins and seven top 10s as he was named to the Sun Belt All-Conference Team for the fourth straight season.
