Former Hewitt golfer named C-USA Golfer of the Week
By Gary Lloyd
UAB senior golfer Sam Love, a former Hewitt-Trussville golfer, was named the Conference USA Men’s Golfer of the Week on Wednesday.
It is the second time in his career that Love has earned the honor.
Last week, Love finished in third place at UAB’s first tournament of the 2013-2014 season, the Topy Cup in Tanagura, Japan. Love registered a 6-under par total for the three-round event, finishing as the top participant from an American university.
It was the best tournament of Love’s career, registering his best 18-, 36- and 54-hole scores of his college career. His 36-hole score of 8-under ranks second in UAB history, while his 18- and 54-hole scores rank seventh and 10th, respectively.
While on the Hewitt-Trussville golf team, Golfweek/Sagarin rated Love as the fifth-best high school golfer in the state of Alabama.
Love was coached in high school by Chad Dahlke.
