CSU's Grice and Anthony Named PBC Golfers of the Week

Men's Golfer of the Week: Justin Grice, Columbus State

Grice had his best tournament in his collegiate career this week as he won the Indian Bayou Classic hosted by North Alabama. He won the event by virtue of a sudden death playoff with Saint Leo’s Nick Brothers. In brutal conditions, the senior ended the two-round event with a four-under par 140 mark. The South Africa native was clutch as he birded seven out of the last eight holes including birding both playoff holes. Grice shot a second round score of four-under 68 which was his best round of his collegiate career.  His 68 is one of seven fired in the league this season and he has jumped into sixth in the PBC with a 74.8 stroke average.

Women's Golfer of the Week: Kimesha Anthony, Columbus State

Anthony finished in a tie for second at the Birmingham Southern Shootout, advancing to a playoff for the tournament championship after shooting a 68 in the final round.  The junior opened with a two-over-par 72 in the opening round, but finished with a two-under 68, the lowest single round shot in the Peach Belt Conference this season.  Her efforts helped CSU to a 289 team score in the second round, also a PBC single-round low.  Anthony entered the playoff with teammate Nikki Crowley and Lee's Courtney Shelton, who won on the first extra hole.  Anthony has finished second, second and third in her three tournaments so far this fall and now leads the Peach Belt with a 74.8 stroke average.
