JGAA Alum and Loyola Marymount University golfer Riley Lewis achieved an outstanding feat in the world of collegiate golf. The collegiate standout surpassed his own program record, etching his name into LMU’s history books as the first golfer to complete a 54-hole event with a score under 200. Lewis delivered three remarkable rounds in the 60s at the USF-Howard Intercollegiate at TPC Harding Park, concluding at a staggering 19-under par with scores of 67-68-62—197. His exceptional performance in the final 18 holes saw him reduce his score by a remarkable 10 strokes, punctuated by an impressive display of eight birdies and an eagle on the last day, resulting in a course-record 62 on Tuesday. Notably, six of his nine birdies were secured on the front nine, while the eagle followed on the 12th hole. Lewis’s stellar play throughout the tournament amassed a remarkable total of 20 birdies over the course of three rounds, solidifying his status as a standout golfer in LMU’s storied golfing history.
