WESTPORT, Conn. Campbell University freshman Andrew Gai was named Choice Hotels Big South Mens Golfer of the Week. The freshman from Westport finished third at the Philadelphia Big Five Invitational. Campbell University is located in North Carolina.
Gai shot a 1-over 141 (71-70) on the par-70, 6,600-yard Plymouth Country Club course to earn his second top-three showing in three collegiate tournaments.
In the second round, he had three birdies on the course that yielded just two finishers in red among a 114-golfer field. Gais play helped the Camels finish second out of 22 teams in the event.
Gai is rated 65th in the latest Golfstat Cup ranking and his 70.38 stroke average stands second among all Big South Conference golfers. He was also named Big South Golfer of the Week on Sept. 15, after finishing second at the Golfweek Program Challenge.
As a team, the Campbell Camels have finished among the top five in each of their first three tournaments of the 2011-12 season.
