BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Florida Atlantic University junior Tai Barber has been named the Conference USA Women's Golfer of the Week after her second-place performance at the FAU Winter Warmup.
"I am so proud of Tai! Coming into this tournament, Tai qualified in the sixth spot which just placed her out of the team competition into an individual spot," FAU Head Coach Kathy Baker-Guadagnino said. "As our team captain, she was a bit disappointed that she didn’t make one of the top five spots and that her score would not count toward the team total. We talked prior to the event and I just told her that there was nothing holding her back and to just win the thing! And she almost did!”
Barber tallied 21 pars and six birdies, finishing second out of 20 competitors at Osprey Point. Her 4.6 (-4) on par 5s lead the field and she recorded her lowest round of the season with an even-par 72 on Monday.
