    Doughtie Named Golf World Player of the Week
     
     

    Lauren Doughtie was named Golf World Magazine’s Women’s Player of the Week for Oct. 6-12 on Monday after garnering medalist honors at the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate Championships on Sunday in Knoxville, Tenn.

    Birdies on the 16th and 18th holes at Fox Run Golf Club, gave the 21-year-old senior a final-round 68 and a two-shot win, her first individual title as a collegian. En route to victory, Doughtie shot a seven-under 209 overall, breaking the Wolfpack’s school record for best 54-hole performance.

    Doughtie trailed Louisville's Cindy LaCrosse by one stroke heading to the final hole, a 488-yard par 5, with the two players competing in the same threesome. LaCrosse proceeded to make a double bogey after hitting her second shot into the water. Doughtie reached the green in two, and two-putted for the birdie and a two-stroke victory.

    "This is a surreal feeling," Doughtie said. "I told myself I was going to go for it on 18, and I did. It was fun playing out here with my friends. Cindy is a great player, and we really pushed each other today."
