FAMU golfer Mulbe Dillard competes in APGA Tour event at Torrey Pines

Florida A&M golfer Mulbe Dillard — the No. 1-rated college player on the APGA Tour — joins a field of elite players competing in the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines on the North Course. The tournament starts on Saturday. 

“It’s a beautiful course. It’s long and pretty demanding of the driver,” said Dillard, a senior from Chicago.

“This is a great experience being able to represent FAMU. I’m glad to be out here surrounded by so many good players. This is a great feeling.”

Leading up to the Saturday’s tournament, he was a live guest Friday morning on the Golf Channel. 

This was a follow-up from his standout performance on Thursday where he played in The Crossings at Carlsbad.  

In this singe-day tournament, Dillard finished one stroke off the lead at 72. His round included two birdies against two bogeys.  

“I finished tied for second glad to put myself in the position to win. I’m having fun and enjoying the energy the APGA provides,” he said.
