Illinois State's Bragg Earns Valley Golfer of the Week Honors (Mar. 4)
It was a light week in Missouri Valley Conference golf action, as several events were cancelled due to unfavorable weather conditions. This week's Missouri Valley Conference golfer of the week is Kyle Bragg of Illinois State. Bragg claimed the Redbirds’ lone point against No. 7 Illinois last Saturday after firing a four-over par 7 in the sixth annual Tinervin Cup at the Coral Creek Country Club in Placida, Fla. Illinois State fell to the Illini, 8-1.
Bragg and teammate Tommy Bliefnick were teamed up in the morning session, losing 4&5 to Chris Deforest and Luke Gutherie. In the afternoon session, Bragg clipped DeForest (79) to earn the Redbirds only point of the tournament.
