Eastern Kentucky University golfer Will Sallee was named the adidas Ohio Valley Conference Male Golfer of the Week, the league announced on Wednesday.

This is the second time in three weeks the junior has been given the title.

The Lexington, Kentucky native led the charge for the Colonels this week at the 2016 Homewood/Hilton Garden Airport & FGCU Classic after tying for first place in a field of 91 golfers. The finish was not only Sallee’s fourth straight top-5 performance but also helped EKU capture its fourth team title in five events on the season.Eastern Kentucky University Golf 2016-17

Sallee carded rounds of 70, 68 and 81 for a total of 219. His final round score was impacted by windy course conditions. The field displayed seven teams from Florida, including No. 44 Central Florida.

The Colonels will be back in action Oct. 30-Nov. 1 at the Hummingbird Intercollegiate hosted by Western Carolina.
