Tide's Cauley Is Golfer Of Week
Bud Cauley, the number one player for Coach Jay Seawell's Alabama Crimson Tide golf team, was the only player in the field to shoot par or better in all three rounds, posting a 5-under-par 211, one stroke ahead of Stanford's Sihwan Kim.
The Jacksonville, Fla., native has built on his All-America freshman campaign in the fall of 2009, finishing in the top six in the three events he's played. Cauley tied for sixth at the Ping/Golfweek Invitational and tied for fourth at the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate before breaking through with a victory at the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational.
The sophomore missed the Crimson Tide's first event of the season while participating in the Walker Cup where he went 3-0-1 to help the United States defeat Great Britain for the third straight time.
With Alabama's fall slate complete, Cauley ranks second in the Golfweek/Sagarin Individual Ratings Index behind only Oklahoma State's Peter Uihlein. He leads the Tide in scoring average at 71.29, currently a tenth of a point better than the lowest scoring average in team history, set by Michael Thompson in 2008.
