CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Charleston Southern junior Brandon Smith has been named the Big South Conference Men's Golfer of the Week, the league office announced Friday. Smith tied for runner-up honors at the Hummingbird Intercollegiate this past Tuesday.
Smith (67-69-69 (-8)) was one of two players in the 84-competitor field to card three consecutive rounds in the 60's. He tied for the tournament high with 15 birdies and had five through 14 holes in his final round to take a late lead before finishing two strokes behind Georgia Southern's Steven Fisk.
Smith's showing paced CSU to a tenth-place finish. The Odessa College transfer has started his Division I career with a flourish, as he also placed in the top-ten (T-10th) at the season-opening Ocean Course Invitational.
CSU's next event is The Phoenix Invitational, Oct. 15-16 at Alamance Country Club in Burlington, N.C.
