Fanonnel Earns PING All-Central Region Honors



MONROE, La. – ULM senior Guillaume Fanonnel, who posted a school-record 70.83 scoring average in 2019-20, has been named to the Division I PING All-Central Region team as announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America.

“This is an outstanding accomplishment for ‘G’ and a reflection of the year he had,” ULM Director of Golf Tim Baldwin said. “He was the No. 1-ranked player in the Sun Belt Conference, with a school-record 70.83 stroke average. This honor now allows him the opportunity to be considered for All-America recognition.

“The Central Region is arguably one of the strongest in the country, including golf powerhouses Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, SMU, Arkansas, and Baylor among others.”Fanonnel is one of only three players from the Sun Belt Conference to be honored across six regions, joining Coastal Carolina’s Zack Taylor (All-East) and Troy’s Connor Futrell (All-Southeast).

A native of Lyon, France, Fanonnel finished the shortened 2020 spring season ranked No. 74 among NCAA Division I players, according to Golfstat. He led the team in scoring average (70.83), subpar holes (7), fairways hit (.659), birdie conversion (.296) and greens in regulation (.741). His three eagles tied for the team lead and his 71 birdies ranked second. The 6-foot-3 Fanonnel shot par or better in 13 of 18 rounds, including five in the 60s. He posted two Top 5 finishes in 2019-20, including second at the UTSA/Lone Star Invitational (8-under 208) and fifth at David Toms Intercollegiate (11-under 205). Fanonnel was selected Sun Belt Conference Golfer of the Week for his runner-up performance at the UTSA/Long Star Invitational last September.
