Pepperdine Golfer Sahith Theegala Competes in PGA Tour’s Genesis Open

Pepperdine golf star Sahith Theegala wrapped up an outstanding performance at the PGA Tour’s Genesis Open this past weekend, adding to his lengthy list of collegiate accomplishments. The sophomore earned a spot at the Genesis Open after bringing home the title from the Collegiate Showcase at Riviera Country Club, tieing for 49th place with a 2-under 282. 

Last season, Theegala was named the West Coast Conference Freshman of the Year and made the PING All-West Region and All-WCC first teams. His 71.06 freshman scoring average was the fourth-best in single-season history within the Pepperdine program, and the athlete’s quarterfinalist placement at the 2016 U.S. Amateur earned him a spot into the 2017 U.S. Amateur field. 

Currently, Theegala has a team-best scoring average of 70.78, and is ranked number 38 in the nation by Golfstat.
