CLEVELAND, Ohio – Freshman Sam Davis was named the North Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week on Monday after earning a top-five finish and leading Denison men's golf to a team championship at Centre College this past weekend.

Helping the Big Red earn their first team title of the 2019-20 season, Davis tied for the team lead with a 36-hole score of 145 to finish in a tie third place overall with teammate Marc Mitchell. After carding an even-par 72 on Saturday, the first-year tallied four birdies during the final round and was one-under on the back nine to end up at 73 for the day.

Earning the first NCAC Player of the Week award for his career, Davis currently holds a season average of 74.5 through four rounds this season while also finishing in the top-15 on two different occasions.

Davis and the Big Red will return to the tee box on Saturday, Oct. 19 when they host the second annual Virtues Fall Shootout at the Virtues Golf Club in Nashport, Ohio.
