GREENVILLE, N.C. - East Carolina's Emelie Lind was named Conference USA Golfer-of-the-Week for the second time this year after finishing second at the 2008 Pinehurst Challenge in Pinehurst, N.C.
The Kungsangen, Sweden native recorded her fourth top-five finish and sixth top-20 placement when she finished four strokes out of first place with a five-over par 221 (75-74-72).
Lind recorded 37 pars on the weekend, which led the tournament field, and ranked third in par-4 scoring (+5) and tied for fifth in par-5 scoring (-1). In her 34 career tournaments, she has a 77.04 stroke average, which ranks third all-time in school history. Lind has recorded six top-10 finishes and 14 top-20's in her career.
Lind helped the Pirates (89-14-0), who are nationally ranked 20th by Golfweek, 28th by Golf World and 29th by Golfstat, to their fifth consecutive team title and sixth in seven events this season.
This is the second weekly honor for Lind this season (Oct. 17), second of her career and the sixth time this season that a member of the Lady Pirate Golf Team has been named Golfer-of-the-Week (Abby Bools/ Sept. 26 and Feb. 20; Amber Littman/Oct. 31 and Nov. 8).
The Lady Pirates will be back on the links March 29-30 when they travel to Tucson, Ariz. to participate in the Mountainview Collegiate.
