GREENVILLE, N.C. - East Carolina sophomore Wes Conover has been named the Conference USA Golfer-of the-Week, according to an announcement made Thursday by the league office. This is the first weekly conference honor of his career.
Conover, a native of Holly Springs, N.C., finished tied for ninth individually at the Sea Best Invitational, an event that included C-USA foes Florida Atlantic and Old Dominion along with a trio of ranked teams. Conover had rounds of 74-82-67 for a total of 7-over 223, finishing tied with one ranked player and ahead of another.
The ninth-place showing was the first top-10 finish of his career, while the third round 67 was the lowest of his collegiate career.
