Chang Grabs 3rd ASUN Golfer of the Week Honor

For the third time this season, Liberty's Ervin Chang has been named the ASUN Men's Golfer of the Week, taking home this week's accolade after his third top-five finish of the 2018-19 season.

Chang finished tied for fifth place with a 7-under par 206 (72-64-70) at the Mason Rudolph Championship, last Friday through Sunday. The 54-hole event was played at the Vanderbilt Legends Club (par 71, 7,100 yards) in Franklin, Tenn.

Chang's fifth-place showing helped Liberty finish the Vanderbilt hosted tournament in second place. The Flames carded a 12-under par 840 (280-278-282), finishing behind tournament host and No. 4 Vanderbilt, who won its home events for the second year in a row and the sixth time since the event started in 2001.

Chang carded a 7-under par 64 during the second round, which was one shot off the tournament 18-hole record. Chang's 7-under par 64 was his second lowest 18-hole total of the 2018-19 season and marked his eight sub-70 round of the season.

The native of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, played the par-5 holes at a -5/4.58 scoring average, helping the Flames lead the field in par-5 scoring during the event (-26/4.57 scoring average).

Chang previously shared the ASUN Men's Golfer of the Week honors twice this season on Nov. 1 and March 14.
