(ROCHESTER, N.Y.) – Freshman Jason Li (Sewickley, Pa./Sewickley Academy) of the Carnegie Mellon University men's golf team was named University Athletic Association (UAA) Golf Athlete of the Week following his performance last week, as he was the Tartans top golfer averaging 72.8 in five rounds of play.
Li finished the week by carding back-to-back rounds of two-under par 70 at the Oglethorpe-Royal Lakes Fall Invitational in Flowery Branch, Georgia, to help the Tartans to a third-place finish in a field of 18 teams. Li's score of 140 for the 36-hole event tied him for third individually on the par-72, 6,856-yard Royal Lakes Golf and Country Club. His 140 tied him for the third-best 36-hole total in program history.
On Monday, October 2, Li completed play at the 54-hole Gordin Collegiate Classic hosted by Ohio Wesleyan University at the par-71, 6,562-yard Delaware Golf Club course in Delaware, Ohio. The freshman carded a one-under 70 on Monday to end the event with a 224 after posting rounds of 78 and 76 to start the classic.
Li currently leads the Tartans with a 72.4 average through seven rounds this fall.
Carnegie Mellon will conclude its fall season on October 23-24 when they compete at the O'Briant-Jensen Guilford College Memorial which is being held at the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina.
