THE ROAD HERE
The Irish hit a small bump in the road in the 2018 spring opener at the Mobile Sports Authority Intercollegiate, finishing sixth with an 873, +9. Notre Dame will take the lessons learned into the strong field at PGA West.
Davis Lamb shone bright last week, recoding the best finish of his young career with a three-under par (213), eighth-place showing. Lamb shot an even-par 72 then followed that up with two rounds of under par at 70 and 71.
