UCF senior Brad Schneider (Valrico, Fla.) was named the Conference USA Men’s Golfer of the Week Wednesday after leading the Knights to a runner-up finish at the John Hayt Collegiate Invitational. Schneider tied for eighth individually against a field that included nine of the top-50 ranked teams and a dozen ranked golfers.
UCF finished four strokes behind No. 8 Arkansas and a stroke better than No. 13 North Florida, while placing three golfers in the top 15. Schneider finished the event at the Sawgrass Country Club in Ponte Vedra Beach at 216 (E).
Schneider concluded the event with an even-72 after carding a 71 in the first round and a 73 on the second day. The top-10 finish was the third of the year for Schneider. This is Schneider’s second C-USA Golfer of the Week award this season and third honor of his career.
The Knights, who are ranked 16th nationally, will return to action Sunday when play begins at the USF Invitational in Dade City.
