TCU's Meyer Named Conference USA Men's Golfer of the Month
May 4, 2004
FORT WORTH, Texas - TCU senior Adam Meyer has been named the Conference USA Men's Golfer of the Month for April, the league office announced today. He is the first TCU player to win the award since Adam Rubinson took home the honor in December of 2002.
Meyer cruised to a nine-stroke individual victory and helped his Horned Frog squad successfully defend their team crown at the 2004 Conference USA Championship from April 19-21. The senior, who was the only player in the 70-person field to break par every day of the event, fired a 10-under 206 and was one stroke from tying former TCU standout Bret Guetz's championship record of 205 (-11) set in 2002. Rounds of 68-69-69 gave Meyer his fourth collegiate title and first this season.
Meyer also had a big day on April 26, as he was named TCU's 2003-04 Co-Male Athlete of the Year and narrowly missed qualifying for the PGA Tour's HP Classic of New Orleans. Meyer shot a five-under 67 and missed the open-qualifying mark by just one stroke.
Earlier in the month, he placed in a tie for 11th at the Boilermaker Invitational with a 54-hole score of 216 (E). Meyer had rounds of 74-69-73 in that event and for the month carried a stroke average of 70.33. On the year he owns a team-best scoring average of 71.33 and has six top-10 landings.
The native of China Spring, Texas, was named the Golf World National Men's College Golfer of the Week following his victory at the C-USA Championship. He is currently rated 22nd in the nation according to the Golfweek/Sagarin ratings system.
