No Frenchman has ever won the U.S. Open. Can TCU’s Paul Barjon shock the world? | Fort Worth Star Telegram

This would be an incredible feat.

“It’s golf for all 144 players in the field,” said Barjon, the Fort Worth resident who plays out of Mira Vista Country Club. “Obviously some guys have resumes that are bigger than mine, like Tiger and all these guys know what they’re doing and have been there a ton.

“But at the end of the day we all get a tee time so that’s what I’m going to focus on. I’m going to try to do what I do every week and not get carried away watching other players. I’m lucky enough to have played in two PGA Tour events now, so I know how things work and how I have to stick to my own routine and not follow anybody.”
