I've been getting some positive feedback on recent efforts to try to highlight non-revenue sports, in particular both Men's and Women's golf.  As I don't live in Seattle nor do I have anybody on the staff able to cover non-revenue sports live, I have to depend on press releases and fanshots of other beat reports in order to get the news out.  Still, UW has been doing a nice job of getting out press releases on Golf, so I'll try to get in the habit of creating posts with them.

The UW Men's team continues its hot play as it prepares to open up the Redhawk Invite against several other teams from the Pacific Northwest.  All-time UW wins leader, CT Pan, will lead the Dawgs in a critical tune up match as the season races towards its conclusion.  Pan has already racked up three wins on the season and seven for his UW career.

UW's full press release is as follows.  Let's talk Golf in the comments section.

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. -- No. 10 Washington is back in action this week at the Redhawk Invitational, played at Chambers Bay, site of the 2015 U.S. Open. The Dawgs will be the top-ranked team in the field as they look for their second win of the season.

The tournament is the two-day, 54-hole competition that begins Monday, April 6 with 36 holes and continues Tuesday, April 7 with an 18-hole final round. It will be contested on the par-70 course at Chambers that will play 7,341 yards. The course is beginning preparations for the U.S. Open and should provide an extreme test for the players this week.

Washington has finished in the top four at four of five tournaments this spring, including a win and two runner-up finishes.
