UTEP’s Haddad earns C-USA Women’s Golfer of the Week

UTEP’s Audrey Haddad has been named the Conference USA Women’s Golfer of the Week following her performance for the Miners at this week’s GCU Spring Invitational.

This marks the first C-USA Golfer of the Week honor of Haddad’s career.

Haddad, a senior on this year’s team, shot 4-over par in the Miners’ season-opening tournament to lead the team and finish tied for 12th among over 80 individuals at the GCU Spring Invitational.

Haddad opened the season by shooting even par (72) and 1-over (73) on day one of the tournament before closing out the event with a score of 75 (+3) on Tuesday.

It marked the second time in Haddad’s career that she was UTEP’s top finisher in a tournament. Her score of 72 in the first round tied for the lowest round by a Miner during the tournament.

UTEP placed eighth out of 15 teams competing in Phoenix. Haddad and the Miners will be back in action on March 15-16 when the team travels to Houston to compete in the HBU Husky Invitational.
