@LATechGolf Paalson Named C-USA Golfer of the Week

Oct. 25, 2017

RUSTON – One day after his record-setting performance, Louisiana Tech sophomore Felix Paalson was named the Conference USA Golfer of the Week by the league office Wednesday.

The Stockholm, Sweden native captured the individual title at the 2017 Quail Valley Intercollegiate after firing a 54-hole program record 14-under-par 202 (67-68-67) Monday and Tuesday at Vero Beach, Florida.

Paalson bested 74 other competitors from some of the top programs, including Louisville, Notre Dame, South Florida, Mississippi State, Michigan State and Nebraska. His first and third round 67’s were career collegiate lows.

Tied with South Florida’s Claudio Correa heading into his final hole Tuesday, Paalson birdied the par 5, No. 7 to pick up his first collegiate win. His 54-round total included 30 pars, 18 birdies and one eagle.

Paalson will lead the Bulldogs into the Duck Commander Intercollegiate next week in El Dorado.
