MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Senior Bryan Fox (Roswell, Ga.) of the No. 23 Georgia College golf team has been named Bobcat Athlete of the Week for his outstanding performance in the First Federal Southeastern Collegiate last week. Fox currently leads the golf team, and is ranked sixth in the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) overall for his 72.5 stroke average.
Fox finished second overall in the Southeastern Collegiate March 11 at the Kinderlou Golf Club in Valdosta, Ga. This was Fox's second top-two finish on the season and just as before, it also earned him the PBC's AstroTurf Men's Golf Player of the Week.
He completed the tournament five strokes under par to post a 54-hole season-low score of 211. Fox's first round 69 was the second-lowest round of the tournament. He was able to finish his last two rounds at 71, helping the Bobcats to an eighth-place overall finish in the 18-team tournament field.
