COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – After an outstanding performance at the Intercollegiate at The Grove this past weekend, Tennessee Tech junior Will Brooks collected his first career Ohio Valley Conference Male Golfer of the Week honor as announced by the league Wednesday afternoon.

The Cookeville native paced the Golden Eagles at the event in College Grove, Tenn., tying for fourth place overall in the field of 88 golfers. With the scheduled second round of play rained out, he recorded a 142 for 36 holes of action, highlighted by a 4-under 68 on Tuesday. 

His second-round 68 represented the low score of the day for the entire event, fueled by four birdies and an eagle. The 2-under 142 represented the lowest 36-hole score in Brooks' career. For the event, he ranked second among all golfe3rs with compostie 4-under mark on par-4 holes.

The Golden Eagles will return to action next week when the team heads to Greystone Golf Club in Dickson, Tenn. for the F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate. The event is scheduled to begin Monday, Oct. 14 and run through Tuesday, Oct. 15.
