WAUKESHA, Wis. (WLCSports.com) - Wisconsin Lutheran College senior Tyler Wood (Eagan, Minn./St. Croix Lutheran) has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Men's Golf Student-Athlete of the Week for the events of March 6-12, as selected by the league's sports information directors. This is the first award of Wood's career and the first for a Warrior this season.
Wood shot a three-round 233 (78-82-73) and tied for 37th in an 82-competitor field consisting of 76 Division I players at the Pinehurst Intercollegiate last weekend. His third-round 73 tied a career-low and was the third-lowest score of the day. Wood birdied four holes over a five-hole stretch during his career-best round.
Wood and the Warriors return to the links tomorrow in North Carolina for a triangular against Lake Forest and North Park at Southern Pines Golf Club. First tee time is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. CST.
