Davidson’s Tribus Earns Second A-10 Weekly Golf Honor
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – For the second time this season, Davidson’s Clayton Tribus has been named Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week, as announced earlier today by the league office.
The honor is for tournaments played Feb. 22 – March 20.
A freshman from Madison, Wisc., Tribus was selected after claiming individual medalist at the 2019 Pinehurst Intercollegiate March 8-10.
Tribus (67-72-71), who led wire-to-wire en route to his first career title, finished the three-day tournament at 210 (-3). He was the only competitor in the 87-player field to finish under par.
“I am very proud of Clayton,” said head coach Tim Straub. “He played terrific golf at Pinehurst in some really tough windy wet conditions. Winning a tournament as a freshman is a great accomplishment and I am excited to see him continue to develop.”
In addition, Davidson cruised to the team title by 29 shots over Radford. The win was the third in the last nine tournaments for Davidson dating back to last season.
Enjoying one of their most successful campaigns in program history, the Wildcats have a pair of wins and six Top-3 finishes this season, while holding a team stroke average of 288.43.
The Wildcats will enjoy a two-week break before co-hosting the Irish Creek Collegiate with Charlotte, April 6-7 in Kannapolis, N.C.
