Matt Organisak Earns UAA Golf Honor

Matt Organisak Earns UAA Golf Honor

Emory sophomore Matt Organisak (Sudbury, MA) has been selected by the University Athletic Association as Golfer of the Week following his performance at the Rhodes College Fall Classic, held  at the 7,125-yard, par-72 Tunica National Golf Club in Tunica, Mississippi. It is the second time in his career that he has landed the award.

Organisak led the Emory effort, co-tying for medalist honors with Will Hocker of Webster University with each player firing a 10-under score of 206.  Organisak carded rounds of 71-67-68 with his second-round effort establishing a career best while tying the program's fourth-best outing. His final score of 206 established a school record for a 54-hole tournament, bettering Ryan Dagerman's previous standard of 212 at the 2012 Marine Federal Credit Union.

Organisak's performance helped Emory to a first-place finish out of 19 reams with the Eagles a school-record 855 (283-285-287), shattering the program record for a three-round event.  

The No. 7-ranked Eagles resume play, Sept. 24-25, when they compete at the NCAA Fall Preview.
