Husky Golfers Maintain Busy Summer
The Husky men's golf team has several athletes -- both current, future and past -- participating in various events this week.
At the 108th PNGA Men's Amateur Championships being held at the Home Course in DuPont, Wash., a handful of Huskies are alive in the match play-formatted tournament. In yesterday's action, the most interesting match pitted Husky versus Husky. Darren Wallace, the No. 11 seed, defeated teammate Richard Lee, 2 and 1, to advance. Jens Bracht, the No. 36 seed, defeated Curtis McCormack, 3 and 1, and incoming freshman Chris Williams, who is the No. 2 seed, downed Matt Epstein, 7 and 6.
It has to be noted that match play was the downfall of the Huskies in the 2009 NCAA Championships. So, the more opportunities the players have to participate in that format, the better it will be for them down the road.
In other action, former Husky Alex Prugh is playing in the Ford Wayne Gretzky Classic Presented by Samsung (definitely a mouthful) on the Nationswide Tour this weekend. There are over 200 competitors in the Toronto event. Current Husky Chris Killmer will be on the bag for Prugh this weekend.
