IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa senior Shawn Rennegarbe has been named Big Ten Golfer of the Week after her performance at the Diane Thomason Invitational on Sept. 29-30, the conference announced Wednesday. It is the first weekly honor of her career.
Rennegarbe carded a 54-hole total of 221 (+5; 79, 73, 69) to take medalist honors for the first time in her career. She fired three birdies on the back nine to register a career-low, 18-hole score of 69 (-3) in the third round. Rennergabe is Iowa’s first individual tournament champion since 2015. Her performance also led the Hawkeyes to their first team title since 2015.
