First Time Honoree

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – Belmont freshman golfer McCullough Pickens has been named Ohio Valley Conference (OVC) Co-Men's Golfer of the Week by the conference office on Wednesday morning.   He shares the honor with Eastern Kentucky's Will Sallee.

Pickens, a native of Sea Island, Georgia, tied for fourth in a field of 78 at The Invitational at Savannah Harbor in Savannah, Georgia. The freshman carded rounds of 68-72-74 to finish at 214 (-2) and help his team to a fourth place finish overall. It marked his best finish of the year, surpassing a seventh place finish at the Trevecca Fall Invitational in late October.

For the season, McCullough ranks third on the team in scoring with a 75.5 average and his 68 in round one in Savannah was the lowest score posted by a Bruin this season. 

Pickens and the men's golf teammates will be back in action on March 10-12 at the Pinehurst Intercollegiate in Pinehurst, North Carolina.
