N.C. - Gardner-Webb senior Kristopher Gray was one of three
golfers named the Big South Men's Golfers of the Week for events played Oct.
13-19, it was announced today by the Conference office.
Gray joined Presbyterian College junior
Matt Sizemore and Campbell senior Vaita Guillaume as the tri-Big South Men's Golfers
of the Week, as all three took first-place overall in their respective
tournaments this past week.
Gray, Sizemore and Guillaume all
claimed medalist honors and each finished their respective 54-hole tournaments
7-under par. Gray and Sizemore tied for first at the Donald Ross
Intercollegiate (par 70, 6,718 yards) at 7-under par 203. Gray carded
rounds of 67, 67, and 69 to help lead Gardner-Webb to second-place finish as a
team. Sizemore shot 66 in the first and second rounds, and his final
round of 71 included a 30-foot putt on No. 18 to earn co-medalist honors with
Gray. Sizemore eclipsed his own 54-hole best by 17 strokes and broke PC's
school record for lowest three-round score by six strokes.
Guillaume won his first collegiate
tournament with a 7-under par 206 (72-67-67) at the Georgetown Intercollegiate
(par 71, 6,640 yards). He was the lone golfer in the 67-player field
under par for the tournament and won by nine strokes. His 54-hole total
is a career-best and the sixth lowest in school history. Guillaume led
the field with 13 birdies, including seven during Tuesday's final round.

honor that Gray has received this season, earning the award for the first time
this year back on October 7th.
