MADISON, Wis. -- Following a record-breaking tournament of golf at the BYU Entrada Classic, Wisconsin’s Kimberly Dinh earned the women’s golf weekly honors from the Big Ten Conference on Wednesday.
The first Big Ten weekly award of her career, Dinh took home her first collegiate individual title and led the Badgers to a team championship at the tournament at the Entrada at Snow Canyon Golf Course in St. George, Utah. It was the second time Wisconsin won that same tournament, having gone the distance in 2011.
The sophomore from Midland, Mich., shot an even-par 72 in the first round, followed by a 2-under 70 in the second round later in the day. Heading into the final round with the outright lead, Dinh closed out the tournament with a 2-over 74 for an even par 72-70-74=216. The 18, 36 and 54-hole scores were all career-bests.
Through seven tournaments and 21 rounds of golf this season, Dinh is averaging 76.57 strokes a round.
This is the second Big Ten weekly golf honor for the Badgers this season. Senior Lindsay Danielson earned the recognition on Oct. 17, 2012, after winning the Hoosier Invitational.
