Pepperdine's Sahith Theegala Qualifies For Genesis Open!

Three swell things happened Monday at Riviera: Jordan Spieth showed up less than 24 hours after winning the AT&T National Pro-Am to play in the third annual Collegiate Showcase, Pepperdine won the team competition led by Web.com Tour Player Jeff Gove (good for $50,000 to the program), and Pepperdine's Saweeth Theegala won low medalist honors and a spot in this week's Genesis Open.

The Chino Hills sophomore posted a 69 to beat UCLA's Tyler Collier by one.

He spoke to Golf Central following the round.

And he was well supported in the effort:

Looks like Saweeth is doing a great job of growing the game. Play well this week, ST

Good to see the Woods Foundation keeping this event going. Great way to highlight college golf and raise some money.

Honest question: what does Pepperdine Golf do with $50,000 that they hadn't factored into the budget previously?

Each team member will be fitted for a new set of PXG clubs? That should eat up the $50K pretty quickly.
