Connolly garners OVC Golfer of The Week honor


After leading the Eagles to their third consecutive top-5 finish, Bridget Connolly has been named OVC Golfer of the Week, the league announced Wednesday. This is the fourth time in her career that she has been awarded this honor.

Connolly finished tied for 15th among a talented field at the Spring Break Shootout this past week. The Auckland, New Zealand native carded rounds of 77-71-72—220, with her second round tying her mark for lowest individual round of the season.

Connolly found success on par 3s and par 5s throughout the tournament, averaging scoring of one under par and two under par, respectively. She also carded 33 pars and eight birdies over the course of the two-day event en route to her third top-20 finish this season.

Connolly and the Eagles return to the links in two weeks at the Any Given Tuesday Invitational in Pawley's Island, S.C.
