MINNEAPOLIS - After an impressive weekend in which she finished as the runner-up at the Hoosier Fall Invitational, Minnesota's Carmen Laguna has been named the Big Ten Women's Golfer of the Week.
The native of Tomares-Sevilla, Spain fired a career best 1-under par 212 (72-73-67) over the weekend at Hickory Stick Golf Club in Greenwood, Ind. The tournament score was the best of Laguna's career as was her final-round score of 67 at the 6,062-yard, par 71 course.
Laguna finished second in a field of 80 over the weekend, tying her best career finish and ending the event just two strokes off the lead.
