Eastern Kentucky University senior Edvin Lindgren was chosen as the Ohio Valley Conference Men’s Golfer of the Week on Wednesday. Lindgren led the Colonels and tied for 4th overall in a field that included 78 players at the Health Plan Mountaineer Invitational.
Lindgren began the tournament with a 3-under 69 and followed it up with a 71 and a 75 for a total of 215 (1-under) for the tournament.
This the first time the Sweden native was chosen as OVC Men’s Golfer of the Week.
Eastern finished with a team total of 889, which was good enough for third place. The Colonels finished ahead of teams such as James Madison, Akron, Bowling Green, Boston College, and Georgetown.
The Colonels return to action when they travel to the Little Rock Invitational held by Arkansas-Little Rock on October 22-23.
