St. John's, Notre Dame Capture BIG EAST Golf Player of the Month Honors




PROVIDENCE, R.I. - With BIG EAST golf teams one month into their fall schedules, the conference announced its men's and women's Golf Player of the Month awards for September play. St. John's sophomore Harin Lee grabbed the award on the women's side, while Notre Dame senior Max Scodro earned the distinction for the men.

Lee earns BIG EAST women's golf Player of the Month after an impressive showing at the Towson Women's Invitational on Sept. 11-12. Lee shot back-to back rounds of 73 in the two-round tournament at Hillendale Country Club in Phoenix, Md., to claim first place individually. She led after both rounds of the tournament and her 36-hole score of 146 (2-over par) was five strokes ahead of the second place finisher. Lee also notched a top-three finish at the Cardinal Classic held on Sept. 17 and Sept. 18 at The Players Club in Yorktown, Ind. She finished 5-over par with rounds of 76 and 73. Her 149 score was four strokes off the winning mark of 145.

Scodro earns BIG EAST men's golf Player of the Month by notching a pair of top-10 finishes as well as a top-15 result early in the fall season. The senior ended each tournament with an even-par or sub-par round. He led the Irish rotation at each of the first three events. Scodro finished the month with a 72.00 scoring average, including 70.00 in his third rounds. His steady play also helped the Irish beat some top 2011 NCAA Championship teams including Duke, Ohio State and Augusta State at the Olympia Fields Invitational. He also helped Notre Dame defeat two BIG EAST team's at the Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic including Villanova and Georgetown. His rounds of 71, 73 and 69 for a score of 213 (3-over par) gave him a fourth place finish in the field of 70 competitors.
