SPARTANBURG, S.C. – ETSU’s Shiso Go has been named the Southern Conference Men’s Golfer of the Week for all competition from Oct. 30 to Nov. 5. The selection is made by the league office and is the final one of the fall.
Go played just one round on the week but it was a good one, as he turned in a 6-under-par 66 to cement a win at the Hoakalei CC Invitational at Hoakalei Country Club in Ewa Beach, Hawaii. Go finished the three-day tournament, whose first two rounds were on Oct. 28-29, with a 14-under 202 to claim a five-stroke win in the 113-golfer field.
The junior from Kanagawa, Japan, completed his third top-10 finish of the season and the seventh of his career. Go, who won the 2019 SoCon Men’s Golf Championship, earned his second collegiate tournament victory.
As a team, ETSU went 15-under on the final day of the tournament to finish at 29-under 835, topping the 20-team field. Ranked No. 32 at the time, the Bucs finished nine strokes ahead of No. 41 Ole Miss and 10 strokes clear of No. 10 Louisville, who were second and third, respectively.
ETSU, which has completed its fall schedule, opens spring play at the Seminole Intercollegiate in Tallahassee, Florida, on Feb. 22-23.
Also nominated: A.J. Lintunen (Chattanooga) and Tumi Kuld (Western Carolina).
