Walor Captures Second-Straight PBC Golfer Of The Week Laurel
AUGUSTA, Ga. – After leading a second-round charge that carried the UNCP women's golf team to a first-place finish at the Wingate Pinehurst Challenge on Sunday and Monday, sophomore Shauna Walor has captured her second consecutive Peach Belt Conference Women's Golfer of the Week accolade, the league office announced Monday.
The honor marked the sixth-straight week that a UNCP golfer has taken home the honor, as well as the eighth time in 10 total weeks that the laurel has been given out. Teammates Katja Dammann and Meghan Moore have both captured the accolade three times, with Walor grabbing the title twice.
Walor, a Wake Forest native, narrowly missed attaining her second medalist honor in as many weeks after finishing with a tournament-low 72 in the second round. The rally left her 4-over par and just one stroke behind Saint Leo's Jordan Hatch for the individual title. The round improved on her day-one total of 76 by four strokes and helped the eighth-ranked Lady Braves trim 16 strokes off its first-round team total. UNCP captured the team title via a scorecard playoff with No. 16 Saint Leo.
Through nine events in the 2010-11 campaign, Walor has booked an impressive 77.3 stroke average to go along with nine top-20 finishes, including four events in which she has finished in the top five. She has compiled a 79.9 stroke average in nearly two seasons in the Black and Gold, and has registered 17 top-20 finishes, included in which is five top-5 tallies.
