29 Th11 2021 | 09:02

Grand Canyon senior Michael Salazar was named WAC Golfer of the Week after the El Paso, Texas, native’s performance at last weekend’s Hawkeye Invitational in Iowa City, Iowa.

Salazar led the Lopes with an 11th-place finish at Finkbine Golf Club, home of the Iowa golf programs. His final-round 68 boosted him 10 spots on the leaderboard to finish just outside the top 10.

Salazar recorded 11 birdies in 54 holes, a final tune-up for the WAC Championship that begins on April 30 at Boulder Creek Golf Club in Boulder City, Nevada.

This is Salazar’s second WAC Golfer of the Week award after he also won for claiming medalist honors at the GCU Invitational in March.
