MACON, Ga. (Oct. 6, 2005) - After one of the most successful Septembers in recent A-Sun golf history, ETSU's Rhys Davies (Bridgend, Wales) earned Atlantic Sun Golfer of the Month Honors as announced by the league office on Thursday.

 

            Davies won the Shoal Creek Intercollegiate, capturing his school record sixth individual title.  The Bridgend, Wales, native got stronger as the tournament went on finishing with a final round 68 to claim the co-championship following a deadlocked four-hole playoff with two other golfers. The 10th-ranked Buccaneers finished fourth overall in a field that featured six top-25 teams and three top-15 players. Davies is currently ranked fifth in the nation according to the Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index. The junior is a Sports Management major.

 

            The win by Davies came despite four A-Sun men's golfers captured team titles in September as Cody Hale (Lipscomb - EKU Colonel Classic), Jeff Lanier (Belmont - Buffalo Rock Southern Showdown) and Frederic Sundberg (Campbell - Towson Invitational) each took home medallist honors.  On the women's side, Lorrie Warren (Belmont) and Ainsley Wellinghoff (Stetson) established new school scoring records during the first month of competition.

 

            The Atlantic Sun Conference hands out Golfer of the Month awards on the first Thursday of every month during the 2005-06 campaign. The 11-member league headquartered in Macon, Ga., consists of Belmont, Campbell, ETSU, Florida Atlantic, Gardner-Webb, Jacksonville, Kennesaw State, Lipscomb, Mercer, North Florida and Stetson.

 

            Davies and the Bucs, who have competed twice so far this season, will return to action in their own Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate at the Ridges next weekend, Oct. 15 & 16. For more information on that tournament and Buc golf throughout the season, visit ETSUBucs.com.
