Yaun Nabs ASUN Golfer of the Week Honors

Following a runner-up finish at last weekend's Seminole Intercollegiate, Liberty's Jonathan Yaun has been named the ASUN Men's Golfer of the Week.

Yaun carded a 6-under par 210 (74-67-69) on the Golden Eagle Country Club (par 72, 6,965), in Tallahassee, Fla., the home course of Florida State.

The only player in the 75-field to beat Yaun was Florida State's John Pak. The No. 9 ranked golfer in the country posted a winning score of 11-under par 205 (70-65-69) on his home course.

Yaun's runner-up finish allowed No. 33 Liberty to take third place in the tournament with a 9-over par 873 (297-285-291), held last Saturday and Sunday.

No. 17 Washington claimed the team title with a 9-under par 855 (289-288-278), while No. 25 East Tennessee State finished in second place with a 2-under par 862 (290-292-280).

Yaun finished tied for second in the field in par-4 scoring (3.90 scoring average) and tied for sixth in par-5 scoring (4.67 scoring average). He completed the event with 13 birdies, ranking third in the field.

Following three-straight events in his home state, the native of Minneola, Fla., now leads the Flames on the season with a 70.63 season stroke average. He has posted three top-10 finishes in eight events during the 2019-20 season.

The sophomore has posted a par or better score during his last five events and has played his last 15 rounds of golf at a scoring average of 69.3.

The honor marks the second time this year Yaun has been named the ASUN Men's Golfer of the Week. Liberty has garnered a total of four ASUN Men's Golfer of the Week awards during the 2019-20 season.
