Brandon Robison, Trevor Lewis, and Carson Enright all shot 4-under 68 to take a one-shot lead after the first round of the 2024 Southwestern Men's Amateur Championship at Desert Mountain Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Robison won the Agave Amateur in December and is looking to add to his resume this week in Arizona. He is currently ranked No. 231 in the Golfweek/AmateurGolf.com U.S. Rankings.

Jack Dozer, Ethan Wilson, Johnny Walker, Adam Bresnu, Jason Gordon, and Carlos Astiazaran are all T4 and one shot back of the leaders at 3-under.

26 golfers are within three shots of the lead and under-par after the first opening round.

First played in 1915, the Southwestern Amateur has been played at various sites throughout Arizona, California, Texas, Nevada, and New Mexico on an annual basis, with the exception of a three-year hiatus from 1943-45 because of World War II. On four occasions, the event has been played in Mexico.

Originally founded as a regional match-play invitational tournament for private golf course members to compete against the nation’s best amateur players, the Southwestern Amateur has developed a stellar reputation as a high-quality competition for the nation’s top players. The tournament was changed to a stroke play event in 1966 to meet the growing demands of the tournament and the increased popularity of the game created during the Palmer-Nicklaus era.

The Southwestern Amateur has a long and distinguished list of previous champions that have gone on to great success on the PGA Tour and Champions Tour.
