Rain Washes Away Williams' 2012 Web.com Debut
July 26, 2012
SEATTLE - Five golfers with Husky ties were playing around the nation on Thursday, including Chris Williams, the newly anointed No. 1 ranked World Amateur Golfer.
Williams and former Husky Alex Prugh were both on the course at Ohio State's Scarlet Course for the Web.com's Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational when inclement weather halted first round action. Prugh was 1-under through 10 holes and Williams was even through six.
Williams earned a spot in the tournament along with the 10 other PING First Team All-Americans. The soon-to-be senior at Washington is playing in his first Web.com tournament this year.
On the PGA Tour, a couple of Huskies are playing in the RBC Canadian Open this week at Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Ancaster, Ontario. Richard Lee shot an even-par 70 in the first round and is tied for 66th. Nick Taylor shot 5-over 75 and finds himself with an uphill battle to make the cut. He is 144th after the first round.
In Bandon, Oregon, incoming freshman Jonathan Sanders shot 1-over 71 in the third round of the Pacific Coast Amateur Championship at Bandon Trails Golf Course. He sits tied for 17th at +11 overall. Sanders will enter Friday's final round 10 strokes off the lead.
