SAMMAMISH, Wash. -- Former Saint Mary's golfers Ben Geyer and Mac McClung are among the accomplished field at the 20th Sahalee Players Championship next week at Sahalee Country Club.

The tournament opens with 18 holes on Monday, 36 holes on Tuesday and a final round on Wednesday.

Geyer, who was involved in a 3-way playoff for medalist honors in last year's event, is the West Coast Conference co-Player of the Year and is the 2012 individual league champion.  He was runner-up in the 2012 California State Amateur Championship and was one of 27 golfers on the 2013 Ben Hogan Award Watch List.

McClung, was a two-time first team all-WCC selection and tied school record with 9-under par 63 in the 1st round of the NCAA Pullman Regional last spring en route to a fourth place finish.  A native of Fremont, Calif., he posted 12 top 10 finishes as a collegian.

Inaugurated in 1992, the Sahalee Players Championship (SPC) at its inception strove to annually showcase the best amateur golfers in the Pacific Northwest. As the stature of the club continues to grow as a result of hosting the 1998 PGA Championship and 2002 World Golf Championships-NEC Invitational, the SPC's founders decided to make the SPC a truly international amateur event. As such, invitations to the Sahalee Players Championship are extended only to the finest amateur players worldwide. Those asked to compete will face the same challenge as the professionals at the PGA Championship and WGC-NEC Invitational — 72 holes at stroke play over Sahalee's demanding South and North nines.
