FOREST, VA-Freshman golfer Hunter Martin (Gloucester, VA/Gloucester) scored ODAC Golfer of the Week honors after winning his collegiate debut and helping the Tigers to a first place finish in the Tom Kinder Memorial Tournament last week.
Martin's win didn't come without a little extra effort, however, as he and teammate John Hatcher Ferguson (Rocky Mount, VA/Franklin County) tied for first at 2-under 142 following two rounds on the par 72 layout set at 6,906 yards. Martin birdied the first playoff hole to secure the individual medal. He carded rounds of 70 and 72 against to match Ferguson's total following his 69-73 showing. The pair led the Tigers to a four-stroke win over host Bridgewater in the team standings at 1-over 577 (288-289) for the tournament.
Martin and the Tigers are currently competing in the Royal Lakes Fall Invitational.
