Men's Golf - Mon, Mar. 11, 2013

ASHEVILLE, N.C. - Josh Wheeler of Tennessee Wesleyan is the Appalachian Athletic Conference Men's Golfer of the Week, the league announced on Monday

​This is the first AAC weekly golf award of the 2013 season, and this is Wheeler's second career award.

The junior from Maryville, Tenn., helped the Bulldogs to a fifth-place finish at the Lee Univeristy Invitational in Cleveland, Tenn., last week. Due to inclement weather, only one round was played. Tennessee Wesleyan posted a team score of 301, putting it one stroke back of fourth-place Lindsey Wilson (Ky.). Host Lee (Tenn.) won the 14-team event with a 288.

Wheeler tied for sixth place individually, firing an even-par 72. He posted a 38 on the front nine but rallied on the back nine, recording a 34.

Tennessee Wesleyan also placed sixth at the Tusculum (Tenn.) Invite over the weekend with Wheeler posting scores of 75 and 79.
