UCLA won its first tournament of the year Tuesday at the Redhawk Invitational.
It was a nice victory for the Bruins, ranked 14th in the country. Over three rounds they shot 9-under 835, three clear of Washington.
But this title was intriguing mostly because of where it was won – Chambers Bay, site of the 2015 U.S. Open.
The Scottish-style links course in University Place, Wash., hosted the U.S. Amateur in 2010, and this was the first time that this event has been staged at one of the most unique venues in the continental U.S.
The Robert Trent Jones II-designed course, which played to a 7,047-yard par 70, is virtually stunning, pressed hard along the Puget Sound.
Here is some eye candy from the event:
