Davis Nabs Rookie Golfer of the Week Award
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- Freshman Chris Davis has been named Rookie Golfer of the Week by the USA South Athletic Conference for his play in the Tom Kinder Memorial held Sept. 20-21. 

The tournament is hosted annually by Bridgewater College at Lakeview Golf Club in Harrisonburg, Virginia.  The event named is in memory of the late Tom Kinder, former Director of Athletics at Bridgewater.  Ferrum has a connection to Bridgewater; Kinder's brother Ted was Ferrum's Director of Athletics for over 10 years.

Davis shot a 9-over-par 153 to finish 17th in a field of 60 golfers.  He carded a 78 on the first day of competition, then followed it up with a 75 the second day.  It was his first collegiate golf tournament.
Coach Bryan Harvey's Panther golf squad will return to action Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 29-30, at the Greensboro Invitational at Bryan Park in Greensboro, North Carolina.
