SEATTLE -- Thursday was a busy day for current and former Husky golfers in Washington and around the country. Nick Taylor and Alex Prugh each competed in the first round of the PGA Tour's Travelers Championship, Chris Williams leads after three rounds of the WSGA Men's Amateur Championship and Richard Lee is tied for eighth entering the final round of the Northeast Amateur Championship.
Taylor and Prugh are tied for 99th with a handful of golfers at TPC River Highlands outside of Hartford, Conn. after each shooting a first round 1-over par 71. Playing thanks to a tour exemption, Taylor was 1-under after his first nine holes, but had a couple bogeys on his second nine to end up at +1.
