DENVER - New Mexico State's Justin Shin has been named the Verizon Western Athletic Conference Golfers of the Week for March 19-25.
Shin, a junior from Maple Ridge, British Columbia (Thomas Haney Secondary School), tied for fourth place at the 2012 Desert Shootout in Goodyear, Ariz., last week. After the second round, Shin was at even par and in a tie for 28th. He then went out and posted an 8-under par 64 in the final round, tied for the lowest round during the entire tournament. It is the first time that Shin has won a WAC golfer of the week or month award.
The Aggies will be back in action at the Wyoming Cowboy Classic, April 9-10 in Scottsdale, Ariz.
