WAUKESHA, Wis. (SabreAthletics.com) – Senior Joe Bertram has been named Northern Athletics Conference Golfer of the Week following a third-place tie at the CUW Elite-8 Invite last week, the league office announced, Sept. 24. This marks the second consecutive week that a Marian golfer has claimed the award after Kyle Bruce took the honors last week.
Bertram was the top finisher in the NAC at the tournament, carding a 77 in the single-round event, four shots off the lead. The performance was good for five-over par and a third place tie among 50 competitors.
Bertram set a personal best score in the second round of the Marian Invite earlier this year, firing a 75 at Whispering Springs GC. Prior to this season, his low round score was 77, which he has beat or come within two strokes of in five of his six rounds this season. His current season average is 77.8 strokes per round.
Marian will be back in action Oct. 7-8, at the Viterbo University invitational at the La Crosse C.C. in Onalaska.
