The Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic will have the largest field in its 35-year history when 32 All-Americans from the 2008-09 season compete in two weeks at El Paso (Texas) CC.

Alumni of the event, hosted by the Sun Bowl Association, have gone on to earn more than $1 billion on the PGA Tour. In all, 133 colleges and universities have participated in the tournament, raising more than $640,000 in scholarship money for the participating institutions.
