LakePoint, Ga. - Jacksonville sophomore Michelle Forsland secured her second-straight ASUN Conference Women's Golfer of the Week honor after her record-setting rounds at the Pinehurst Challenge, announced by the league office on Thursday.
From Kolbotn, Norway, Forsland becomes the first ASUN Women's Golfer to win back-to-back weekly awards since former Dolphins Jessica Welch accomplished the feat in March of 2015. Forsland set a program record at the Pinehurst Challenge as her three-round total of 210 is the best in JU history. She opened with an even-par 72 before finishing the opening day with a three-under, 69. On the final day of competition, Forsland registered another 69, which included five birdies to move into third place out of 100 golfers at the event. Next up for Forsland and the Dolphins is the Pinehurst Challenge from Oct. 9-10.
