Montreat College golfer Sean McKaig of Columbus has been awarded the Appalachian Athletic Conferences Mens Golfer of the Week award for the week of March 29 after tying for low score among all AAC participants in the Montreat College Spring Invitational Golf Tournament on March 15 and 16.
Montreat hosted eight other schools at the Glen Cannon Country Club in Brevard, N.C., including four rivals from AAC colleges.
Though McKaig did not win the overall competition, he shot a 75-76-151 to finish tied with Dan Merriman and Zach Lindsey, both of Reinhardt College, in the race to be low scorer among the AAC golfers participating.
McKaig was given the AAC award after a committee including the AAC Mens Golf Chairman voted for him to collect the honor.
Montreat Head Golf Coach David Pennell said he felt that McKaig deserved the distinction, saying, “Sean had a great tournament. He is a dedicated worker, both in the classroom and on the golf course.”
His tie for fifth place also earned the junior a place on the All-Tournament team along with USC-Lancasters Trevor Banks, three golfers from Limestone College, and the duo from Reinhardt.
