CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Charleston Southern senior Art Griffin has been named the Big South Conference Men's Golfer of the Week, the league office announced Thursday. Griffin captured the individual title at the East Bay Deli Classic with a 54-hole tally of three-under par 213.
Griffin's third career collegiate victory and first at CSU came partly on the strength of a final round 67 that matched the tournament's low round. He shared the first round clubhouse lead and entered Tuesday's play at Turtle Point Golf Club one stroke back before outlasting Tennessee's Rhys Nevin-Wharton for medalist honors. Griffin recorded 14 birdies in all, including six in the final round.
Griffin and the Bucs will open the spring season Feb. 27-28 at the Wexford Intercollegiate in Hilton Head, S.C.
