Georgia Bulldogs Figure Prominently at U.S. Open, British Amateur, and Wimbledon

Since a significant slice of our attention as a fan base is focused on the incoming freshmen from the Georgia Bulldogs’ 2011 recruiting class, it seems only fair for us to take a look at former Red and Black athletes whose collegiate careers are behind them, as well. Here is what a handful of onetime Classic City Canines are doing in the world of sports:

All three of the University of Georgia-affiliated golfers participating in the U.S. Open lost ground on Saturday, with Christo Greyling dropping eight spots into a tie for 64th and Bubba Watson, despite being dressed for success, slipping a spot to a 57th-place tie. Although Russell Henley also fell six places on the leaderboard, he still remains in 21st, making him the second-highest amateur in the field. On the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, Henley’s teammate, Georgia junior Bryden Macpherson, earned bids to this year’s British Open and next year’s Masters by winning the British Amateur Championship.

Speaking of sporting events occurring in the United Kingdom, Wimbledon gets underway next week, and the marquee matchup of the first round pits former Georgia tennis star John Isner against Nicolas Mahut. Isner and Mahut, you may recall, played an epic match at the All England Club a year ago.
