SEGUIN, Texas – Texas Lutheran freshman Chase Maus (Manor/Manor) has been named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Men's Golfer of the Week for competition played from Wednesday, March 20 through Tuesday, March 26.
Maus led the Bulldogs to a second-place team finish at the University of Texas at Dallas' Texas Cup event, which was contested at The Courses at Watters Creek.
After Sunday's final round was cancelled due to inclement weather, Maus' first-round 71 was good enough for a tie atop the individual leaderboard. Maus was awarded second place after a tiebreaker was applied.
Maus was named to the Texas Cup all-tournament team.
The Bulldogs have claimed four SCAC Men's Golfer of the Week this year with Colin Uecker collecting three and Maus grabbing one.
