SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Graduate student Daniel Walsh, who tied for fourth at the Bash at the Beach this week, has been named Southern Conference Men's Golfer of the Week for all competition March 6-12, announced by the conference on Wednesday.
Walsh paced the Mountaineers with a 70-72-68=210 (-3), as his final-round 68 and his fourth-place finish are new season-lows. The 3-under is the first time Walsh has recorded a tournament score under-par for the season.
In 14 rounds this year, the Wilkesboro, N.C. native averages 74.64 strokes per round.
Walsh is the first Appalachian golfer to be named to the weekly honor since teammate Josh Nichols was named to the award in 2011.
The Apps return to the links on Saturday, March 16 for the two-day Mission Inn Spring Spectacular, hosted by George Mason University. This season's tournament will be at Mission Inn Golf Course in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla.
