JONESBORO, Ark. (10/14/22) – Capturing his first collegiate victory at the Bubba Barnett Intercollegiate earlier this week, Arkansas State men’s golfer Devyn Pappas has been namedSun Belt Conference Golfer of the Week, the league office announced Friday.
Pappas drained a birdie on the last hole to win individual medalist honors and clinch the team title for the Arkansas State men’s golf team at the 27th annual Bubba Barnett Intercollegiate played at RidgePointe Country Club. Tied with Oklahoma Christian on the final hole, Pappas drove the par-four green and chipped within three feet for the birdie opportunity. After a bogey by Oklahoma Christian, Pappas drained the putt to clinch his individual medalist honors and seal the victory for the Red Wolves.
Pappas turned in three consecutive rounds in the 60’s on way to individual medalist honors, his first collegiate victory, winning by six strokes over Christian Castillo of Arkansas and Anthony Delisanti of Valparaiso. A bogey on the 17th was his only blemish of the day as he followed with the birdie on the last to close out a 4-under par 68 to total 12-under par 204 for the tournament, tied for the fifth-lowest 54-hole total in program history.
