Northern Illinois senior golfer Jeff Dick (Sherman, Texas/Sherman) collected the Mid-American Conference Golfer of the Week accolade for his winning performance at this week’s Bearcat Invitational, the league announced Thursday.
Dick fired a career-best seven-under-par at the par 72 Traditions Golf Club to secure the honor.
The 2010 All-MAC second team selection torched the northern Kentucky course for 10 birdies en route to a comfortable two-stroke victory. Dick’s second individual title helped the Huskies to finish second place, their best showing since the 2008 Davidson Invitational.
After a slow start this season, the Texan has strung together three consecutive top-20 performances. Dick’s excellent play this week also knocked his scoring average down a full stroke to 73.4, good for first on the team and fifth in the MAC.
Dick and the Huskies return to action Monday, Oct. 25, on the Pacific coast at the St. Mary’s Invitational.
