Pirate Golfer Earns C-USA Honors

GREENVILLE, N.C. --- East Carolina senior Chris Ault has been named the Conference USA Men's Golfer-of-the-Week according to an announcement from the league office Wednesday. Ault tied for third at Mid Pines Intercollegiate in Pinehurst with a seven-under par 209.

Ault carded a career-low 54-hole total of 209 by shooting one-under par in the first and third round and five-under par in round two (71-67-71). It was the sixth top five finish of his career and first since his sophomore campaign.

His efforts helped the Pirates earn their first team tournament championship since 2005 and the first not on their home course since 2002.

The weekly honor was the first of Ault's career.

East Carolina will next compete at the Raines Development Intercollegiate in Florence, S.C. beginning Monday, September 17.
