LakePoint, Ga. - Lipscomb's Dawson Armstrong collected his third ASUN Conference Men's Golfer of the Week award of the season after posting a third-place finish in the Sea Best Invitational, the league office announced on Thursday.
Armstrong now owns eight career ASUN Golfer of the Week honors, breaking the conference record for most honors by an individual, previously held by Rhys Davies at seven. The Brentwood, Tenn. native shot a four-under par 206 total to finish in third place in the highly competitive field at the TPC Sawgrass Dye's Valley Course. After shooting an opening round even-par 70, Armstrong shot a 71 (+1) in the second round and was in 13th place.
In the final round, Armstrong fired a five-under par 65, the lowest round of any golfer on the day to climb up the leaderboard and move up 10 spots to finish in third, just two shots behind the medalist winner Ryan Orr from the No. 2-ranked Florida Gators. Armstrong finished ahead of competitors from eight top-60 ranked teams in the latest Golfstat rankings. His play led the Bisons to an impressive second place finish in the team standings, only trailing No. 2 Florida.
Armstrong and the Bisons are back in action on Feb. 27-28 when they travel to the west coast and compete in the Southwestern Jones Intercollegiate hosted by Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif.
