Alabama's Lee Hodges Named SEC Men's Golfer of the Week
Hodges claimed medalist honors and led the Tide to the team title at the Linger Longer Invitational
Alabama senior Lee Hodges has been named the Southeastern Conference Men's Golfer of the Week, the league office announced on Wednesday afternoon. It marks the first SEC weekly honor for Hodges since joining the Crimson Tide back in 2016.
Thanks in large part to Hodges' play, Alabama claimed its fourth title in seven tournaments this season - and first this spring - when it captured the Linger Longer Invitational team title. The Tide carded a final round total of 7-under par 281 and finished the three-day, 54-hole event with a 24-under par 840 (277-281-282) to take a two-shot victory over second place Georgia.
Hodges led the way for Alabama, as he claimed his second medalist honor in three tournaments during the spring season, Lee also won the individual title at the Puerto Rico Classic, finishing with a season-low 54-hole total of 14-under par 202 (67-68-67). It was the second-best tournament score in Hodges' career, while the 14-under was a career-best mark in relation to par.
Hodges, who is ranked No. 21 in the nation according to Golfstat.com following the performance, carded three consecutive rounds in the 60s. He tied for tops in the tournament in total birdies (17) and par 4 average score (3.83), while ranking second in the field in par 3 scoring average (2.82).
In three tournaments this spring, the Ardmore, TN, native has shot six rounds in the 60s and has not finished any lower than 11th place. Hodges is averaging 69.22 strokes per round over the three tournaments and has a combined total of 22-under par throughout the spring season.
Hodges, who shared this week's award with Vanderbilt's Theo Humphrey, earns his second weekly accolade of his career. His first came in October of 2015 when he won the Conference USA Golfer of the Week award as a member of the UAB men's golf team.
Alabama will return to action on April 7-8 when it travels to Bryan, Texas, to compete at the Aggie Invitational.
