Forest, Va. -- The Old Dominion Athletic Conference has selected Lynchburg College golfer Josh Irby as its player of the week, the conference office announced Monday.
A senior from Clover, Va., Irby played a lot of competition golf over the past week, and the game treated him well.
He started the week with a fourth-place finish at the Lynchburg College Invitational at Poplar Grove Golf Club in Amherst, Va., shooting rounds of 75 and 74 in the home tournament to finish a team-low 5-over-par for the tournament.
Irby backed up that performance with a 3-1 showing at The D3 Match Play at Grandover Resort in Greensboro, N.C. He started the tournament with a dominant 3-and-2 win over Guilford's James Mishoe, who is ranked the top player in Division III by Golfstat. Saturday provided wins over No. 18 Rhodes and Mount St. Joseph, and Irby took victories in both matches by 1-up and 3-and-2 scores.
He and the rest of Hornet golf team is continuing a busy April at the Glenn Heath Shipbuilders Memorial in Williamsburg, Va., early this week.
