UNCP's McCurry, Armstrong's Pearce Named Golfers of the Week
Men's Golfer of the Week
Jonathan McCurry, UNC Pembroke
Sr., Sanford, N.C.
McCurry finished in a three-way tie for the win at the Magnolia
Invitational, shooting a two-under-par 211 in three rounds along
with teammate Jordan Walor and West Georgia's Bryn Powers.
Although Walor took the medalist title on a scorecard playoff, it
was McCurry who made headlines with his second-round 63, setting a
course record and tying the PBC mark for the lowest single round
ever shot. The senior had 10 birdies and two bogeys in his
round, matching an 18-year-old UNCP school record. It was the
fourth 63 shot in conference history, the last by Lander's Davis
Lee in 2010.n McCurry has now finished in the top 10 in his
last three tournamentes with two in the top five. He is now
second in the Peach Belt with a 72.3 stroke average, one-tenth
behind teammate Walor.

season. With that result, Pearce cracked the PBC's top 15 in
