(March 19, 2007) - On the strength of back-to-back tournament victories in the last two weeks, ETSU senior and two-time, first-team All-American Rhys Davies (Brigdend, Wales) has moved to No. 1 in the Golfweek/Sagarin individual national rankings. Meanwhile, Davies and the Bucs have moved to No. 13 in the national team rankings.

 

With individual victories in the Seminole Intercollegiate and the General Jim Hackler Invitational over the last two weeks, Davies improved his school record for career individual titles to 10. And while he has finished each of the last two seasons ranked in the Top 5 nationally, those two victories have allowed him to reach the top spot in the national rankings for the first time in his career.

 

As a team, the Bucs - who have Top 6 finishes in each of four extremely difficult tournaments this spring - have remained consistently ranked among the top teams in the country so far this season. The team will return to action March 30 in the Administaff/Augusta State Invitational in Augusta, Ga.
