LOS ANGELES – Monday and Tuesday mark the official start to the second half of the golf season as Loyola Marymount plays in their first tournament of 2018, the Arizona Intercollegiate in Tucson.

The lineup for Coach Jason D’Amore is Riley Elmes, Matthew Carungay, Samuel Su, Nick Jan, and Cameron Meeks.

“The three freshmen have really set a tone for the work ethic needed to travel with the team,” said D’Amore. ”The three of them, with Riley and Nick who have some experience, is really a good mesh. This creates a good dynamic for us and allows us have them mature as soon as possible under Riley and Nick.

Thoughts on The Lineup:

“Riley had a great offseason, and played really well in a big event down in Florida, and really established some confidence for himself,” said D’Amore. “He keeps talking about what he needs to do to stay in contention and win more collegiate events, and we are really looking forward to watching him do that.”


 

 

“Matt Carungay won our first qualifier and worked really hard this offseason to put himself in a good spot to be successful in the spring season,” said D’Amore. “I think he learned a lot in his first semester about what it takes to be successful at the collegiate level and is prepared this semester to really make a good run.”

“Sam Su has just hit it so good and so far in his first weeks into this spring semester,” said D’Amore. “He has a great game for college golf, and after getting used to college his first semester, I think he is ready to make a big jump in the spring.”

“Nick, our senior captain, has so much knowledge and golf experience that I think will really help us from a leadership piece,” said D’Amore. “He did a good job this winter break focusing on what he wants from his last semester of college golf and his work ethic has stepped up quite a bit.” 

“Cameron Meeks just has the perfect game for desert golf,” said D’Amore. “I think going to Arizona will be a great fit for him, being from Las Vegas, and being used to that type of golf. He really picks apart golf courses and handles himself really well on them.”
