May Wood, a freshman from Signal Mountain, Tenn., has been named the SEC Golfer of the Week. Wood finished in the Top 8 in two tournaments including an individual victory at the Bryan National Collegiate and an eighth place finish at the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic. Wood shot a five-round total of 362 in the two tournaments for a 72.4 per round average. She shot three rounds of 71 along with a 73 and a 76.
Wood finished in a four-way tie atop the leaderboard at the Bryan National Collegiate Tournament and led a Vanderbilt
charge in which every player shot 75 or better. She started second round action in a tie four fourth and then shot her second consecutive 1-under (71) to move into the four tie for first place. It was the first collegiate individual title for Wood.
She followed that with an eighth place finish at the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic at Athens, Ga., with a three round total of 220. She started the final round in a tie for 23rd place and improved 15 places with her final and best round of 71.
Wood is the second Commodore to ever receive SEC Golfer of the Week honors and the first in three years. Meredith Ward was selected SEC Golfer of the Week March 10, 2000.
