GREENSBORO, N.C. – Guilford College freshman Justin Perdue (Dublin, Ohio/The Wellington School) earned his first Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Men’s Golfer of the Week Award Monday. Quakers’ golfers have received the award three times this fall, with Ty Palmer winning the prize twice.
Perdue led Guilford with a third-place finish at the O’Briant-Jensen Memorial October 19-20 in Greensboro, N.C. He shot 74-77 to finish nine-over par 151 in the 36-hole tournament and shared third place in the field of 96. Perdue’s performance helped lead Guilford to a third-place finish in the 18-team field that featured four teams ranked among the top-15 squads in the latest Bushnell Golfweek Division III Coaches’ Poll. Perdue played the tournament’s eight par-3 holes at even par, second-best in the field.
Through eight rounds in his college career, Perdue averages 73.25 strokes per round, which ranks first on the team and second in the ODAC.
Perdue and coach Justin Tereshko’s Quakers completed fall play ranked 12th in the latest Bushnell Golfweek Division III Coaches’ Poll and 18th according to Golfstat.com. The Quakers golf team will resume play next March in the TaylorMade/adidas Intercollegiate at the Dataw Island Club in Dataw Island, South Carolina.
