Local Boy Hunter Epson Named Big West Men’s Golfer Of The Month

Long Beach State senior and Wilson High alum Hunter Epson has been named Big West Men’s Golfer of the Month after leading the Beach at both the Nick Watney Invitational and The Prestige in February.

The Long Beach native finished in a tie for fourth place at the Nick Watney Invitational with a 9-under par after shooting 69-70-69, and tied for 21st at The Prestige which featured some of the top competition in the country. With Epson leading the way (73-74-69), Long Beach State was the top finisher among Big West schools as the Beach finished in the top 10.

Epson and the Beach will be back in action on Sunday, March 7 when they compete at the Bandon Dunes Championships in Bandon, Ore.
