Washington’s Chris Williams is named first-team All-American

Updated: August 5, 2012

Washington Husky junior golfer Chris Williams was named first team All-American by Golfweek while freshman Cheng-Tsung Pan earned third team honors.

Williams, who previously was named to the first team of the PING All-American team and Pac-12 squad, finished the year ranked fifth by Golfweek. He led Washington to the quarterfinals of match play at the NCAA Championship after the Huskies ended up sixth after stroke play.

Pan, a 2012 Pac-12 First Team member and GCAA First Team Freshman All-American, ended the year ranked 26th by Golfweek.

• Chris Williams dropped a 3 and 2 match to Sebastian Cappelen and Team USA saw a 10-6 advantage after three rounds of the Palmer Cup evaporate in a stunning turn of events on Saturday at The Royal County Down Golf Club. Europe won seven of eight matches and halved the other to stage a 13.5-10.5 comeback win.

The all-time Palmer Cup results now stands 8-7-1 in favor of the United States.
