RICHMOND, Va. – For the second time in the 2014-15 season, Elon men’s golfer Jonathan DiIanni has earned Colonial Athletic Association Golfer of the Week honors.
DiIanni was a co-medalist for the second time this year as his three-under 137 tied him for first at the Greenbrier Invitational. DiIanni opened the tournament with a three-under 67, matching his career-low round. In his second round, the junior from Kernersville, N.C., carded an even par 70. He was one-under in his third round before rain and lightning forced the cancellation of the final round of play. Over his 36 holes, DiIanni had 11 birdies, including eight in his first round.
His performance helped the Phoenix to a seventh-place finish out of 13 teams in the field. Elon posted a team score of 577 (288-289).
DiIanni and the Phoenix will return to action on April 24 for the first round of the 2015 CAA Championship. That three-day event will be contested in Southport, N.C.
