Chapman golf took to Los Serranos Golf Club in Chino Hills on Sunday and Monday to take on Occidental and La Verne in the Chapman Quad tournament.
Individual and team records were toppled in the 2022-23 opening tournament for the Chapman University men’s golf team. With a pair of newcomers leading the way, the Panthers set their school record for the lowest three-round tournament score.
Chapman University student-athletes set a new school record with 281 individuals earning SCIAC All-Academic recognition. The 281 individuals to earn the annual academic recognition are 22 more than year’s record-breaking number. The SCIAC annually recognizes student-athletes who have been at their institution for at least one academic year and finished the school year with a 3.4 cumulative GPA or better.
As the final group finished their putts on 18 at the Morongo GC at Tukwet Canyon, tied for fifth place on the leaderboard was men’s golf’s Bradley Lu. The sophomore finished his day at one over 73 and a +7 total across the three days.
