ADALAIDE, AUSTRALIA -- The top three players from 67 countries are competing in the World Amateur Team Classic in Adelaide, Australia today, and two Huskies have been selected to play in that field.
Junior Nick Taylor (Canada) and sophomore Tze Huang Choo (Singapore) will tee off today in the two-day event. Taylor, a native of Langley, B.C., will join Jordan Irwin from the University of Houston and David Markle from Kent State, to improve upon a runner-up finish in 2006.
Choo, who won the Singapore Amateur Championship for the second time in 2008, has been his homeland's top-ranked amateur player since 2004. The tournament, which is enjoying its 50th year in 2008, will be held at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club and the Grange Golf Club from October 16 to 19.
