COLUMBUS, Ohio – Clark Engle, a sophomore for the Ohio State men’s golf team, was been tabbed as the Big Ten Golfer of the Week on Wednesday (Oct. 29). Engle earns the conference accolade after winning the Intercollegiate at The Grove, both as the individual medalist and as a member of the team champion Buckeyes.

The sophomore carded a three-round, three-under par score of 213 (75-70-68) at The Grove Golf Course (7,3268-yard, par-72). He recorded the field’s lowest score in both the second and third rounds, posting a 70 and 68 on back-to-back days.

The individual crown is Engle’s career first and marks his third top-5 finish in four tournaments this season. Engle registered a tournament-high 39 pars and contributed a team-high 10 birdies to the Buckeye’s tournament-leading 42 birdies overall.

Engle is the first Buckeye to gain B1G Golfer of the Week recognition since Grant Weaver on Sept. 12, 2013.

For the Fall season, Engle paced Ohio State with a 71.5 strokes average in 15 rounds played. He tallied seven scores under par, including four rounds dipped down into the 60s.
