SPARTANBURG, S.C. (May 26, 2021) – ETSU senior golfer Shiso Go (Kanagawa, Japan) has been named the Southern Conference Student-Athlete of the Week for all competition from May 19-25. The selection is made by the conference office. 

Go came from behind last Wednesday, May 19 at the NCAA Regional in Cle Elum, Wash. to claim the individual title. He captured his third collegiate victory at 8-under-par (205). The win for Go marked the third consecutive season with an individual title, while he becomes the first Buccaneer since Rhys Enoch (2010) to win individual medalist honors at an NCAA Regional. 
 
Go began his final round with a birdie on the opening par-4, setting the tone early for the Bucs. Just five holes later, the Japan native climbed further up the leaderboard with a birdie at the par-4 6th hole. Go made the turn at 2-under-par, however he gave the strokes back to the course with consecutive bogeys to open the back nine. With the Bucs sliding closer to the field, Go delivered a dominating performance down the stretch, finishing 4-under-par in his final six holes to soar up the leaderboard. Go used three consecutive birdies to provide the Bucs with a bigger cushion in the team standings, positioning himself to make a run at the individual title. Needing a birdie on the last hole to jump into a tie for first, Go came through in the clutch yet again. The Japan senior carded a birdie-3 on the par-4 18th hole to enter the clubhouse as the leader at 8-under-par for the event. Go’s final-round 67 (-4) tied a season best for the veteran competitor.

The senior from Japan, holds a 3.889 grade point average and is majoring in finance.
