Hie Tabbed Golfweek.com Player Of The Week

March 11, 2008

Sophomore Rory Hie, who won his second career collegiate title on Sunday after emerging from a three-way playoff, earned Golfweek.com's Men's Player of the Week honor the outlet announced on Tuesday (March 11).

Hie made birdie on the first playoff hole to win the individual title at the Southern Highlands Collegiate Classic. Hie opened with a 1-under 71 and followed it with 69-73 to finish at 3-under 213, tying him with Charlotte's Jonas Enander Hedin and Georgia's Hudson Swafford after regulation play.

Hie's approach on the first playoff hole left him inches from a birdie, which he easily made for the title. His first win was at the 2007 USC Collegiate Invitational. It was also his team-best fifth top 10 finish this season.

Hie and the Trojans returns to action March 24-26 at the U.S. Collegiate at the Golf Club of Georgia in Alpharetta, Ga.
