Former CU golfer Yannik Paul wins SwingThought tourney, giving twin brothers 3 ST victories this year

By Gary Baines – 4/29/2021

Chalk up another one for the Paul twins on the SwingThought national series.

Yannik Paul, one of the German family’s two former University of Colorado golfers, earned his first SwingThought victory of 2021 on Wednesday when he prevailed by two strokes in Scottsdale, Ariz.

It’s the second SwingThought victory in April for the twins — and the third of 2021. Jeremy Paul has won two SwingThought tournaments this year — one in February and the other early in April. In addition, Yannik has won a tournament on the Outlaw Tour this year.

This week, Yannik Paul posted rounds of 65-68 for a 9-under-par 133 total, best out a field of 24 players. After making a dozen birdies and three bogeys, he earned $14,050.

Jeremy Paul wasn’t far off the pace, going 66-71 to tie for third at 137, earning $1,550.

Jeremy stands second on the 2021 SwingThought points standings, while Yannik is third — both behind leader Alejandro Tosti.

Markham, who finished the week with 16 birdies and three bogeys, earned $2,300.

Former Colorado Christian golfer Chase Carlson (70-68-73—211) tied for ninth and earned $1,050.
