EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State men's golf senior Matthew Moseley was named Big Ten Golfer of the Week today, as announced by the conference office. Moseley won his first collegiate event last Thursday, winning a playoff at the Colleton River Collegiate.
Moseley, who wins the award for the first time in his career, is the first Spartan to earn the weekly conference award since Payne Gniewek on April 29, 2009.
The Carmarthenshire, Wales native, shot a 12-over par 228 (78-71-79) at the Pete Dye Course at the Colleton River Plantation Club in Bluffton, S.C. to tie classmate Gareth Blease and Penn State's Chris Houston after 54 holes. Moseley would go on to win the playoff for his first Spartan win. He led the field in par-3 scoring at 1-under, and was second in birdies with eight and par-5 scoring at 3-under.
Moseley has been the top Spartan throughout his senior season. He leads the team with a 73.9 scoring average, while posting three top-5 and five top-20 in seven stroke play events.
The Spartans return to the course on March 23-24 for the Linger Longer Invitational in Greensboro, Ga.
