CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Coastal Carolina sophomore Sam Lyons (Little River, S.C.)has been selected as the Big South Conference Choice Hotels Men’s Golfer of the Week for events played Nov. 1-7, it was announced today by the League office.
Lyons was Coastal’s top golfer at the par-72, 7,119-yard CordeValle Collegiate tournament in San Martin, Calif. He carded a 3-under 213 (68-71-74) to tie for seventh-place, his personal-best individual standing and second career Top 10 finish, as he finished ninth in last year’s Big South Championship. Lyons’ 68 in the first round was a career-low and lowest for the Chanticleers this fall.
