For the first podcast of the 2012-13 college season, thought it was only appropriate to have on the No. 1 ranked amateur golfer in the world—and the No. 1 golfer on the Golf World college players to watch list. Washington senior Chris Williams has a chance to claim most of the Husky career scoring records if he maintains his level of play from this first three years in Seattle. With his win at the Western Amateur in August and his quarterfinal showing at the U.S. Amateur, the 21-year-old from Moscow, Idaho, earned the McCormack Medal and exemptions into next year's U.S. Open and British Open. He'll also be playing for the United States at the World Amateur Team Championship in Turkey next month.
Williams and I had a friendly discussion about his golf accomplishments and what he's looking forward to for this season ... plus he explains why the game "Cornhole" has become all the rage with the Husky golf team.
