Cullan Brown played at or below par in all four rounds of his first PGA event over the weekend, finishing tied for 53rd at the Barbasol Championship Sunday in Nicholasville.

Brown shot a 1-under 71 Sunday to finish at 10-under par for the four-day event – his first on the PGA Tour. He carded 22 birdies and averaged 295 yards off the tee. He found the fairway on 48-percent of his drives and hit 71-percent of his greens in regulation.

The University of Kentucky sophomore and Lyon County alum was the only amateur to make the cut and play all four rounds over the weekend. As an amateur, Brown can’t collect any prize money won or it would jeopardize his eligibility at Kentucky. He would have collected $7,882 Sunday had he played as a professional.
