Updated 10/17/2007

Men’s Golfer Of The Week

John Hahn, Kent State, Fr., Hudson, Ohio (Hudson)

Hahn led the Golden Flashes to a fourth place finish at The Bank of Tennessee at The Ridges this past weekend. The freshman carded an eight under for the Tournament and finished in a tie for second, two strokes of the lead.  Hahn started on Friday with an even par 72, then shot a career low round of 67 on Saturday making six birdies and an eagle on number eight.  He finished off the tournament with his third sub 70 round of the year with a three under 69, giving him an eight under 208 total score.        


Other Nominees

Colin Clemente, Akron, Sr., Hubbard, Ohio (Warren JFK)      

Clemente was 4-over 76 in round three but still managed to place first for the team shooting 216 (71-69-76) over 54-holes. He ended the tournament tied for fifth place.


Brad Larente, Eastern Michigan, Fr., Cambridge, Ontario (Hespeler Secondary)

Larente fired a six-under par 66 in the final round of the Mizuno Southbridge Intercollegiate to place fourth with a two-day total of 211 (73-72-66). Behind a 275 in the final round, the Eagles climbed the leader board to finish in fifth place with a two-under 862 (295-292-275), as host Georgia Southern claimed the tournament title following a playoff with a 856 (286-284-286). Larente's final round 66 is the lowest of his young career and is the lowest 18 hole round by an EMU golfer since Bryan Haase fired a 66 in the first round of the Xavier Invitational, Oct. 2, 2006. Overall the score is the fifth lowest in school-history and just the sixth round of 66 in the program's history. 


Nathan Sutherland, Miami, Fr., Wyomissing, Pa. (Holy Name)

Lost a three-man playoff for medalist honors. Carding rounds of 72, 71 and 72, Sutherland finished in a four-way tie for first place at one-under par 215, but was edged in a three-man playoff by Austin Peay’s Grant Leaver, who birdied the first playoff hole to claim medalist honors at the Belmont Fall Shootout. Sutherland has played in all four tournaments to start the season for the RedHawks. His 215 at the Belmont Fall Shootout marks the second straight event Miami has played in where a RedHawk freshman has posted a top score for the tournament.          


Andrew Frame, Northern Illinois, So., Manteno, Ill. (Manteno)

Finished one stroke off the lead (a four-way tie for first) and tied for the best finish among MAC competitors.
