Vincent Selected ASUN Men’s Golfer of the Week
Liberty’s Kieran Vincent has been selected the ASUN Men’s Golfer of the Week after leading the Flames at the 2021 Maridoe Collegiate Invitational.
Vincent is the second Flame this season to be selected the ASUN Men’s Golfer of the Week. Connor Polender took home the award, last Thursday, following a 12th place finish at the Marquette Intercollegiate at Erin Hills.
Vincent finished tied for seventh place with an even par 216 (73-71-72) following three days of play at the Maridoe Golf Club (par 72, 7,351 yards) in Carrollton, Texas.
The redshirt senior was one of only 10 golfers in the elite tournament field to post a score of par or better. He ranked ninth in the 75-man field with 37 pars, while also finishing the tournament with nine birdies.
The 15-team field featured eight teams ranked in the Golfweek preseason top 25 poll: Arizona State (No. 3), Texas (No. 5), Oklahoma (No. 7), Wake Forest (No. 8), Texas Tech (No. 9), Texas A&M (No. 16), SMU (No. 21) and Liberty (No. 25).
The native of Harare, Zimbabwe helped the Flames post their first top-five finish of the season as Liberty finished the event in fifth place with a 13-over par 877 (291-296-290).
