Izzo Earns PAC Golfer of the Week Honors
WASHINGTON, Pa. – Washington & Jefferson senior Colin Izzo (Longmeadow, Mass./Longmeadow), received Presidents’ Athletic Conference Men’s Golfer of the Week honors on Tuesday for his performance at the Allegheny Guy W. Kuhn Invitational.
Playing in his first tournament of the fall, Izzo captured individual medalist honors at the two-day event held at Meadville Country Club to earn his first collegiate victory. He finished two strokes ahead of CMU's Ben DuCarme, Allegheny's Jimmy Lasher and Rochester's Nick Palladino to claim the title in the 93-player field.
For the 36-hole tournament Izzo carded a two-over par 146, firing an even-par 72 in the first round, one stroke shy of tying his career-low round of 71, and a 74 in round two. His career-low round came in the fall of 2011 at the Tom Kinder Memorial.
A 2012 Division III PING All-Mid Atlantic Region Team selection, Izzo's performance helped W&J to a fifth-place finish in the field of 17 competing teams.
Washington & Jefferson hits the links next for the PAC Fall Championship at Oak Tree Country Club (Sept. 30 - Oct. 1).
