PADUCAH, KY — Last week at the Barbasol Championship, Lyon County alum Cullan Brown turned a lot of heads with a top-50 finish in his first professional tournament.

“It was just phenominal,” Brown said. “It was unbelievable. It was the real culmination of hard work and time put forth into it and it was phenominal.”

The soon to be sophomore at Kentucky has played in many big tournaments before and admitted that although the Barbasol was a big tournament, he wasn’t that nervous.

“There were no nerves,” he said. “Wish I could say there was but no nerves, no tension. The week was so rushed, the golf was the relaxing part of the week.”

Which may be a big reason why he put together some of the best rounds of his life, with three of his rounds under par.

“I was able to play good golf on that stage which made that experience that much more enjoyable,” said Brown.

Not to mention, Brown was able to interact with some of the biggest names in golf, and get needed advice as he continues his own golfing career.

” got to have a great conversation with John Daly,” he said. “Not about advice or the tournament, just a conversation and that was to talk to him.”

But overall, the successful week on the course with professionals was a preview of what is to come for Brown.

“A week like that certainly makes you think I have got to get out here,” Brown said. “We are not there yet, but it is there.”
