    EL PASO, Texas -- Northwestern senior All-American Jack Perry (Santa Barbara, Calif./Santa Barbara) is competing this week as one of 21 participants in the Sun Bowl Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic.

    After the opening day of action Monday, which featured 36 holes at the El Paso Country Club, Perry is in a four-way tie for 13th at even-par 142. He opened the tournament with a 1-under 70 on the 6,781-yard, par-71 layout before firing a 1-over 72 in the second round.

    The event's final 18 holes will be played Tuesday, Nov. 26.

    The tournament is one of the oldest in college golf, beginning in 1974 and being held every year since then with the exception of 1987. College players who earned All-America honors in previous seasons or other special invitees comprise the field that has been described as "the No. 1 tournament in college golf" by the Sagarin/Golfweek Performance Index.

    The roster of past participants and champions includes some of the biggest names in professional golf. Tournament alumni have won 617 PGA Tour events and have amassed over $1.6 billion in Tour earnings.
