England native collects second SoCon POTW Honor this season

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (April 14, 2021) – For the second time this season, ETSU Men’s Golf redshirt-freshman Archie Davies (Carlisle, England) has been named the Southern Conference Men’s Golfer of the Week. The league office announced the recognition on Wednesday afternoon.

Davies tied for seventh at the Stitch Intercollegiate, hosted by NC State at MacGregor Downs Country Club in Cary, N.C, on Friday and Saturday. The redshirt-freshman shot an 11-under-par (205) for the event, turning in three straight rounds in the 60s. Davies opened his tournament with matching 4-under 68s in the first two rounds, matching his season-low rounds relative to par. He then shot 3-under 69 in his final round to match his career-best 54-hole score and log his third top-10 finish of the season and his second straight.
 
ETSU finished third as a team in the 12-team, 69-golfer field, which featured three top-50 teams and four top-100 players. Davies helped the Bucs post a 54-hole program-record 38-under-par 826, including Saturday’s 18-under 270, which tied for the third-lowest round and second-lowest round relative to par in program history.
 
ETSU and the league’s other seven programs are all back in action at the Southern Conference Men’s Golf Championship on April 19-20 at Reynolds Lake Oconee in Greensboro, Ga.
