Huddy has spent most of the past two falls in the Cal lineup playing eight of 10 possible events during the fall of 2014 and 2015. He is expected to be in the mix for a lineup spot in the spring of 2016 despite playing in just one spring event during his first three seasons at Cal including a redshirt campaign in 2013-14. Huddy had his best 54-hole performance in the fall of 2015 when he shot an eight-under 207 at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational. He also had a hot stretch at the beginning of the fall in 2014 with back-to-back career-high-tying tied for 12th place finishes at the Gopher Invitational and Windon Memorial. He has also played some notable amateur golf, including two appearances at the U.S. Amateur.
