LOS ANGELES -- LMU men's golf heads to Bremerton, Wash., for the 2013 West Coast Conference Championships April 15-17 at Gold Mountain Golf Club. Junior Tyler Torano, who has earned a pair of tournament titles this season, leads the Lions into Washington and is featured in the latest Inside the Lions Spotlight presented by Muscle Milk.
The 2013 WCC Championships begin on Monday with the Lions playing with San Diego and Gonzaga starting at 8:40 am with the final player going off at 9:20 am. The Lions five golfers will be led by Torano, who leads the team with a 73.1 stroke average.
He will be joined by a pair of seniors - Eduardo Chavez and Bryan Bergna - and a pair of freshman - Connor Campbell and Chase Nicolai. Bergna is second on the team with a 74.3 stroke average while Campbell is third with a 76.3, ending the regular season with a tournament win at the Anteater Invitational two weeks ago.
Action will take place on the Gold Mountain Olympic Course, which plays at 7.168 yards and is a par-72. It has hosted the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championships (2006), the NCAA West Regional (2008), the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship (2011) and will host another NCAA Men's Regional Championship in 2015.
As for championship experience, Torano talks in the latest Inside the Lions Spotlight how this past summer and the two previous seasons at LMU continue to prepare him to get better each time he takes the course.
And in his junior season, he has done that. Torano, who played in the 2012 U.S. Amateur Championship at Cherry Hills in Colorado this summer, has five top-five finishes this season and has played 12 of his 25 rounds under par. He now has 15 top-20 finishes in his career.
