MAC Women's Golfer of the Week
Susy Grunden, Bowling Green
Sophomore, Krum, Texas (Denton Calvary Academy)
Worldlink North Texas Fall Classic, Par 72
69-71-70 (210, 1st)
As a freshman, Susy Grunden broke BGSU's record for single-season scoring average. In her first tournament as a sophomore, she took virtually every other school scoring record. Returning to her home turf of Denton, Texas, Grunden put together three of the six best rounds in BGSU women's golf history. Her first-round 69 set the school's 18-hole record (previous: 70). Her second-round 71 gave her a 36-hole total of 140 -- another record. And when she tied the previous 18-hole record of 70 in the third round, Grunden set the BGSU women's 54 hole record with a total of 210 -- besting the previous mark by 11 strokes. Her individual victory is the second of her career, and that puts her only one behind the current BGSU record in that category. And despite the team's sixth-place finish at the Worldlink event, Grunden helped the Falcons to a team-record breaking event. With a 303 in the final round, BGSU completed a 54-hole score of 924. That broke the previous school record by 13 strokes. The Falcons' score included rounds of 316, 305 and 303. In the 2009 season, the team scored 316 or better in only one round.
