Peyton Wilhoit earns fifth MVC Golfer of the Week award


ST LOUIS, MO – For the fourth time this year and the fifth time in his career, Southern Illinois men’s golfer Peyton Wilhoit has earned the Missouri Valley Conference Golfer of the Week award.

A junior from Searcy, Arkansas, Wilhoit placed third this week at the South Florida Invitational at 3-over par. It marked the fourth-straight tournament in which he has placed in the top 10 on the leader board, including a 10th-place showing at the Wyoming Intercollegiate, first at the Kennesaw State Intercollegiate, and taking fifth place at the LSU Intercollegiate. He is 13-under par combined during the four-tournament stretch.

The Salukis will play three more tournaments this spring — the William & Mary Intercollegiate, Arkansas State Intercollegiate and Purdue Invitational — before hosting the MVC Championships at Dalhousie Golf Club in Cape Girardeau, Missouri on April 23-24.
