New Mexico State men’s golfer Zachery Fullerton has been named the WAC Golf of the Week, announced by the WAC office on Tuesday afternoon. It is the second time in his career that Fullerton has won a WAC golfer of the week or month award.
Fullerton, a senior from Albuquerque, N.M. (New Mexico JC), won his second straight tournament of the spring with a 6-under par 210 (68-74-68) at the Rice Intercollegiate, Feb. 20-21. His score was the third lowest in event history. Fullerton won the tournament after defeating Eric Chun of Northwestern on the third playoff hole of a sudden death tie-breaker. He had just one bogey during the three rounds.
The Aggies will be back in action on March 9-11 at the 2012 Southern Highlands Collegiate Master's in Las Vegas, Nev.
