ASHEVILLE, N.C. - Union junior Simon Taylor is the Appalachian Athletic Conference Men's Golfer of the Week, the league announced on Monday.
This is the first time this season the Eckenhaid, Bayern, Germany, native has earned the away, and this is the second week in a row a Bulldog has received the honor. Andy Dusek won the award last week.
Taylor was named to the All-Tournament Team, climbing up to third overall after firing a three-under 68 in the second round of the SCAD Atlanta Invitational. His performance paced Union to a second-place finish in the event as the team bested AAC foes Reinhardt (Ga.), SCAD Atlanta (Ga.) and Point (Ga.).
The Bulldogs are competing at the 22nd Annual Men's SEKI, which is being held at Crooked Creek Golf Club in London, Ky.
