CHARLOTTE – Gardner-Webb's Taylor Dodson was named Big South Conference Women's Golfer of the Week Wednesday afternoon, capping her fall season in style.
Dodson (Aiken, S.C.) won the 2016 Preview at the Patriot last weekend, dominating the field during the two-day event – which was held in Ninety Six, S.C., the host site of the Big South Conference's 2017 Women's Golf Championship.
Dodson shot back-to-back rounds of 70 on the 6,083-yard course and won medalist honors after finishing as the only golfer under par for the tournament. The veteran paced the field with nine birdies and also led all individuals in par 3 scoring (-2), par 4 scoring (+2) and par 5 scoring (-4).
Dodson's efforts also helped Gardner-Webb win the team title, edging league foe Winthrop for that trophy.
