Katz garners America Sky Conference Golfer of Week Award

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- Senior Jake Katz was named America Sky Men’s Golf Conference Golfer of the Week for his performance at the Cornell Invitational this past weekend.

Katz led the Bearcats to a 13-shot victory in a superb title defense of the team's win last season. He led a group of 81 golfers for medalist honors on the strength of a personal-best 5-under-par 211 in the 54-hole event.

Katz toured Cornell University's Robert Trent Jones GC for a 36-hole total of 2-under on the opening day; carding a 70 in Saturday's morning round and an even-par 72 in the afternoon.
He finished with a 3-under-par 69 to win the third individual title of his career at BU.

Katz was recently tabbed as No. 126 in the country according to the latest Golfweek/Sagarin ranking. His overall rating will improve in the next poll, which will take into account his medalist effort at Cornell over the weekend.
