Air Force's Kyle Westmoreland Named Mountain West Men's Golfer of the Week
March 20, 2013
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Air Force junior Kyle Westmoreland has been selected the Mountain West Men's Golfer of the Week for tournaments played March 11-17.
Westmoreland recorded the second individual title in his career after capturing the Jackrabbit Invitational in Primm, Nev., on March 11-12. He finished the tournament with a 15-under-par 201 (67-69-65) on the par 72, 7,090-yard course. Westmoreland was the only player in the field of 81 golfers to score in the 60s each round, including a career-low 65 in over the final 18 holes. His 65 in the third round is the lowest score by a Falcon since Tom Whitney had the same score in the second round of the Agua Caliente Air Force Invitational in 2007. Westmoreland's 54-hole total of 201 is the second-best in school history behind Whitney's 200 at the 2009 Desert Shootout.
Westmoreland's individual crown helped the Falcons earn the team title, winning the tournament by 13 strokes over second-place Idaho. Air Force also shattered the school record for best team score in a 54-hole tournament, posting a 36-under par total of 828, bettering the previous record by 12 strokes.
Westmoreland currently ranks second in the Mountain West with a 72.09 stroke average over 23 rounds.
