    Sept. 26, 2013

    The No. 23 USC men's golf team, which has advanced to the NCAA Championships final in each of the past seven years, continues its 2013 fall slate at the 58th Annual William H. Tucker Intercollegiate at the University of New Mexico Championship Course in Albuquerque, N.M., Friday and Saturday (Sept. 27-28).

    In addition to host New Mexico and USC, the field features Arizona, Arizona State, BYU, Colorado, Colorado State, Minnesota, New Mexico State, San Diego State, TCU, UNLV, UT-Arlington, UT-San Antonio, Wichita State and Wyoming.

    The teams will play two rounds on Friday and a final round Saturday, both starting at 7:45 a.m. Live results are available at

    USC, under eighth-year head coach Chris Zambri, is led by seniors Jeffrey Kang, a 2012 All-American, and Ramsey Sahyoun, as well as junior Anthony Paolucci.

    Joining the Trojans are a host of newcomers including junior Paul Smith, the younger brother of the recently graduated All-American Sam Smith, sophomore reserve Andrew Levitt, sophomore transfer Bobby Gojuangco and freshmen Rico Hoey, Danny Ochoa and Khaled Attieh.



    In USC's season-opening event, the Trojans, featuring a lineup that included four newcomers, tied for seventh at the Kikkor Golf Husky Invitational. Smith, the junior transfer, led USC with a tie for seventh at 2-under 214 (72-73-69). Hoey had put together a great first tournament at 4-under 212 (73-68-71), but a scorecard error on a 5-over final hole disqualified his round.
