FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- Covenant sophomore golfer Nathan Hawkins has qualified as an individual for this week's USA South Tournament in LaGrange, Ga., at the Highland Country Club.
Hawkins was one of three individuals, based upon GolfStat rankings, to qualify for the tournament that begins on Thursday, April 12 and runs through Saturday, April 14. Hawkins is scheduled to tee off at 8 a.m. on all three days of the tournament.
The sophomore from Lexington, N.C., leads Covenant in scoring average on the year at 77.60 after 15 rounds of play. Hawkins has the top two rounds for the Scots on the year as he carded a 72 in the first round of the Callaway Gardens Intercollegiate on March 5, and a 73 in The Master's University Spring Invite on Feb. 27.
It will be the second consecutive year that Hawkins has played in the conference tournament. He led the Scots last year with his 13th place finish and a 54-hole score of 224. Hawkins posted a 1-under, 71 in the final round of the event last season to set a personal best round.
