DENVER (March 29) - New Mexico State freshman Demi Mak has been named Verizon Western Athletic Conference Golfer of the Week by the league office for her play during the week of March 21-27.
Mak, a freshman from Hong Kong (The International School of Macau), won the BYU at Entrada Classic that was held in St. George, Utah, March 21-22. Mak shot a 2-over par 218 (74-74-70) to win the tournament by four strokes. Her 70 in round three was one of just four under par recorded by anyone in the field of 81 players during the tournament and was a career-low for the freshman.
"Demi is a good player and she has been working hard on improving her game," head coach Paul Brilliant said. "She is very deserving of the award and we are all proud of her. It is exciting to know that she still has three years of eligibility left after this year."
She had eight birdies and 37 pars in the 54 holes played. It is the first time in her career that Mak has won a WAC golfer of the week or month award.
