DALLAS, Texas — WKU Lady Topper Golf’s Bailey Tyree has won her first Conference USA
Women’s Golfer of the Week award, the league announced Wednesday.
The junior Tyree put together her best performance to date this week at WKU’s own
Spring Break Shootout in Florida, finishing third with a career-low, 1-under 212
Tyree’s 212 is tied for the third-lowest 54-hole individual score in Lady Topper
history. She tied with a teammate for the tournament lead in par-3 scoring.
Tyree set career lows for 18 and 36 holes on Monday, including a first-round 68,
which ties for the fourth-lowest single round in program history.
Her efforts helped WKU shatter its previous program records for 18-, 36- and 54-hole
team score. The Lady Toppers broke their previous record for 54 holes by 11 strokes
on Tuesday with a 5-over 857.
They tied co-host Florida Gulf Coast in the team standings, but dropped to second on
a fifth-player tiebreaker.
Tyree’s first career C-USA weekly honor is WKU’s fourth of the season from three
different golfers. Junior Mary Joiner won back-to-back awards to open the season,
and sophomore Megan Clarke closed the fall with her first career weekly accolade.
The Lady Toppers’ next tournament is the Memphis Women’s Intercollegiate on April
1-2 in Germantown, Tenn.
