COLUMBIA, S.C. - South Carolina junior Caleb Sturgeon was named the Golfweek Player of the Week after leading the Gamecocks to a 24-stroke victory at the Badger Invitational last week.
Sturgeon captured medalist honors for the second time in his career as he shot rounds of 65-72-69=206 (-10) at University Ridge Golf Course, becoming the 11th golfer in school history to win multiple tournament titles. As a team the Gamecocks finished with a total of 856 (-8).
A native of Laurens, S.C., Sturgeon has four career top-five finishes, just one shy of breaking into the top 10 in school history. His career scoring average of 73.07 currently ranks as the fourth best all-time at South Carolina.
Sturgeon and the Gamecocks will close out their fall schedule on Nov. 3-5 at the Wendy's Kiawah Classic. The 54-hole event will be held at Turtle Point Golf Club in Kiawah Island, S.C. Sturgeon won his first career title at the event last year as he led South Carolina to a 20-stroke victory.
