Utah Valley’s Eriksen Named WAC Men’s Golfer of the Week
DENVER—Utah Valley senior Brayden Eriksen has been named the Western Athletic Conference men's golfer of the week for Feb. 23-Mar. 1. It is the second time this season that Eriksen has earned the honor.
Eriksen, a senior from Qualicum Beach, B.C., Canada (Kwalikum HS), tied for second place at The Loyola Golf Invite (sponsored by the Neville Kovacs Group). Two of his three rounds came under par as Eriksen carded a four-under 212 on the tournament to tie with Obe Ayton of St. John's for second place among the 100-golfer field. The Wolverines won the tournament by six-strokes over second-place Utah.
“Brayden's on a roll right now,” said Utah Valley head coach Chris Curran. “He was a big reason the team won last week. He's a great kid and works extremely hard. Nice to see him finding success.”
Eriksen and the Wolverines will be back in action March 13-15 at the Bandon Dunes Championship at the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, Oregon.
