The Texas Tech Red Raiders Men’s Golf team has an eye-popping eight players that could qualify for the US Amateur tournament from Aug 10-16 at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, Oregon. 

According to Texas Tech head coach Greg Sands, typically anywhere from three to four players qualifying is the mark for a good team. What even makes the feat more impressive is that the field has shrunk this year from its standard 312-man field down to 264. 

The potential Red Raiders to qualify due to their WAGR (World Amateur Golf Ranking) are as followed…

Sandy Scott: #9 

Ludvig Aberg: #37

Andy Lopez: #139

Markus Braadile: #145

Bard Bjornevik Skogen: #163

Carl Didrik Mee Fosaas: #213
