Brendon Doyle named Big Ten Conference Golfer of the Week

For the first time in his career, senior Brendon Doyle was named the Big Ten Men’s Golfer of the Week, as announced by the conference’s office Wednesday.

The award came after Doyle claimed co-medalist honors at the Windon Memorial in Evanston, Illinois, on Oct. 9.

After two rounds of play at the Windon Memorial, Doyle had a score of one-over-par and found himself in a tie for 13th place. Doyle then came out in the third round and posted a career-low round of 5-under 65, propelling him to a tie for first with Patrick Flavin of Miami (Ohio).

This is the first time an IU golfer has received the award since Jake Brown did it as a freshman in March 2016. 

Following the team’s third-place finish at the Windon Memorial, the Hoosiers will now play in Indiana for the second time this season. 

The Crooked Stick Invitational in Carmel, Indiana, will begin Monday with two rounds of play, followed by round three Tuesday.
