FISH’S BIG BREAK – SHANNON FISH
The Golf Channel announced March 12 that former Texas golf standout Shannon Fish will appear as one of 12 contestants in the upcoming season of “Big Break Atlantis.” Shot on location in the Paradise Islands, Bahamas, the series’ 17th season will premier May 14. The show features an all-female cast who will compete for an exemption into an LPGA event. Fish competed in 107 rounds as a Longhorn and averaged 76.98 strokes per round including a 74.65 average in her final season on the 40 Acres. In her four seasons at UT, she contributed to the team score in 86 competitive rounds (.851) for a mark that ranks ninth-best in school history (since 1993-94). Fish turned professional in 2011 following graduation and posted four top-four finishes on the Cactus Tour in her rookie season.
