Merritt Named Western Athletic Conference Golfer of the Week

DENVER Boise State’s Troy Merritt was named the Western Athletic Conference Men’s Golfer of the Week for March 20-26.


Merritt, a junior from Fridley, Minn. (Spring Lake Park HS), fired a 13-under par, 203, to collect his first collegiate individual title by two strokes in the Ron Moore Invitational at the Palm Valley Golf Club at Goodyear, Ariz. Merritt remained consistent throughout the tournament shooting a 67 (-5) in the first round, a 68 (-4) in the second round and a 68 (-4) in the final round. Merritt also was very effective on the greens as he did not three-putt throughout the tournament.
