The Washington men’s golf team led wire to wire and won the 54-hole San Diego Intercollegiate Tuesday at San Diego Country Club.
Four Huskies finished in the top 14 among individuals — led by Chris Williams and Cheng-Tsung Pan, who tied for third place — as Washington claimed its second team title of the year.
Trevor Simsby was the Huskies’ unsung hero. Simsby, who grew up just outside San Diego in Carlsbad, had a triumphant homecoming by firing a final-round 69.
Simsby ended in seventh place and Charlie Hughes was 14th.
