For the second-straight week, SIU senior Matthis Besard was named a Missouri Valley Conference Golfer of the Week. This is the fifth time Besard has been recognized by the MVC with the weekly honor. Tim Lim of Drake and Valparaiso’s Caleb VanArragon were also recognized, the league announced on Friday.
Besard claimed his second individual title of the 2021-22 season Tuesday at the Grover Page Classic. Besard led the field of 92 with commanding rounds of 68, 66, and 67 to finish at 15-under par, which tied the school record for individual 54-hole score with a total of 201.
Besard moved past Jake Erickson (2009-2013) for most individual tournament wins in program history with his fourth career individual title.
