Day named OVC Golfer of the Week​​​​​​​


EVANSVILLE, Ind. – University of Southern Indiana senior Jace Day (Bloomington, Indiana) was named the Ohio Valley Conference Golfer of the Week after his performance in The Buddy (hosted by Murray State University) this week at the Miller Memorial Golf Course in Murray, Kentucky. Day claimed the medalist honor after posting a school record seven-under 206 (70-66-70) over the 54-hole tournament.

Day’s 206 broke the 54-hole record set by teammate, Jason Bannister (Laguna Niguel, CA), who posted a 208 two weeks earlier at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville’s Derek Dolenc Invitational. The second-round 66 was a career-best for Day and tied for the third-best single round in the history of the program.

As a team, Day and the Screaming Eagles won The Buddy team championship by 12 shots.

The Eagles complete the fall tournament schedule October 28-29 when they play in the Kentucky Wesleyan Invitational, hosted by KWC at the The Pearl Club in Owensboro, Kentucky.
