After securing his first championship this week at the Grub Mart Intercollegiate, WKU senior men's golfer Brandon Beckham has been named the Conference USA Co-Men's Golfer of the Week, the league office announced on Wednesday.
WKU senior men's golfer Brandon Beckham earned his first individual medal on Tuesday, tying for co-champion honors while leading his team to a second place finish at the Grub Mart Intercollegiate, held on the famed Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.
Through two rounds at the Grub Mart Intercollegiate, hosted by Jacksonville State on the legendary Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, WKU has pieced together their best two rounds of golf this season and finished the day in second place with a seven-under 569 (285-284).
Playing in the toughest field in arguably the last three seasons, the WKU Men's Golf team fired a 36-over 900 (296-298-306) to finish in 16th place at the Florida State-hosted Seminole Intercollegiate, an event featuring four Top 25 teams.
Much like the women's side, the WKU Men's Golf team was held out of finishing their final round today due to rain at the Samford Intercollegiate. With two rounds on the books, the Hilltoppers finish in fifth place while senior Brandon Beckham tied for fifth overall.
