No. 8 Huskies Back In Action At Lamkin

Mar 4, 2022

After more than a month since their last competition, the Washington men's golf team returns to action next Monday and Tuesday at the Lamkin San Diego Classic, at San Diego Country Club in Chula Vista, Calif.
 
The Huskies enter the week ranked No. 8 in the latest GolfStat.com team rankings, with fifth-year senior RJ Manke currently ranked the No. 1 collegiate men's golfer in the nation, according to GolfStat.
 
"We are looking forward to playing the Lamkin," said UW head coach Alan Murray. "San Diego Country Club is always a great test and a bit of a classic in my opinion. Super fast, contoured greens really test your course management skills, and being on the correct side of the hole is especially important with your approach shots."
 
The Lamkin San Diego Classic, hosted by San Diego State, will feature three rounds and 16 teams. The golfers will play 36 holes on Monday, March 7, followed by the third round the following day. Monday's shotgun start is scheduled for 7:30 a.m., and the third round gets underway Tuesday at 8:30 a.m.
 
Washington will send seven golfers to the tournament, including two who will play as individuals. Here is the lineup for Washington:
 
1. RJ Manke
2. Noah Woolsey
3. Petr Hruby 
4. Teddy Lin
5. Bo Peng 
Individual: Taehoon Song and Robert Galligan
 
"Some of our guys have played this tournament previously and I feel like that is a big help here," Murray said. "At first glance the course may not appear that difficult, but with competitive rounds under your belt you really see where and how the course can bare its teeth.
 
"The guys are all playing nicely and excited to get back at it," Murray continued. "We haven't played a tournament in around a month so it will be nice to compete. We are entering the meat of the season and the events will be coming thick and fast for us after this one. We have 2 Indy spots here also so it's a great chance for Taehoon and Rob to compete also."
 
Washington won the Lamkin in 2015, with a 10-under team score. That year, Huskies C.T. Pan and Corey Pereira tied for the individual title, both finishing 8-under par.
 
The San Diego Country Club has played host to a U.S. Women's Open and two U.S. Women's Amateur Championships, as well as a PGA Tour event.
 
The Huskies have competed twice so far this spring, finishing third at the Southwestern Invitational and fifth at the Amer Ari. Following the Lamkin, the Huskies will next play in the Duck Invitational, March 21-22, in Eugene, Ore.
