Vincent Selected Big South Freshman of the Week

Liberty's Kieran Vincent closed the fall with his best individual 18-hole of the season, helping him earn this week's Big South Freshman of the Week award.

The freshman closed the Bridgestone Golf Collegiate with a 7-under par 65, allowing him to finish the overall event tied for 23rd place with a 3-under par 213 (72-76-65).

Vincent's 7-under par 65 tied for the fourth lowest 18-hole total in program history and marked his fourth sub-70 round of his freshman season. He led the Flames during the event with 35 pars.

Liberty finished the event with a 25-under par 839, its third best 54-hole team total in program history and two shots off the program's all-time record of 837.

Vincent is one of four Flames currently holding a sub-par average (71.57). He helped the Flames shatter the program's fall team scoring average with a 283.07 average (previous record was a 290.75 set in 2010).

This is the second weekly honor of the young Harare, Zimbabwe native. He was named the Big South Player of the Week after capturing medalist honors at the season opening Rod Myers Invitational with a winning score of 15-under par 201 (67-67-67).

The Flames will return to the golf course on Feb. 6-7 with a return visit to the TPC – Sawgrass – Valley Course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., for the Sea Best Invitational.
