Eric Sugimoto, the 2013 Big West Conference medalist, has transferred to USC from Pacific and will have two seasons of eligibility, including the remaining part of the 2013-14 season.
Sugimoto, in fact, made his Trojan debut at the Arizona Intercollegiate, where USC finished fourth today.
Sugimoto is coming off of a successful sophomore campaign in which he won his first conference individual title at the Big West Championships in 2013, leading the Tigers to the team win as well. A 2013 All-Big West first teamer, his 72.39 stroke average was third best in the conference and he posted three top 5 finishes on the year.
As a freshman, Sugimoto posted one top 10 finish and three top 20 finishes in 11 events.
