Kaske Spotlighted By Golf World

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Augusta State’s Janne Kaske has been named the national Player Of The Week, according to a release today from Golf World magazine’s headquarters in New York, N.Y.

Kaske, along with LSU sophomore Megan McChrystal, were selected College “Players of the Week” for the period between March 30 and April 5. The feature will appear in the April 13th issue of Golf World and can be viewed online now at www.golfworld.com

A senior from Porvoo, Finland, Kaske’s final-round 65, combined with a pair of 67s, earned him medalist honors at the Hootie at Bulls Bay Intercollegiate in Awendaw, S.C., sparking the Jaguars to their first win since 2005. He followed up that effort with a T-3 finish that lifted ASU to the team title in its home event, the Administaff ASU Invitational, on April 6.

Kaske has recorded four top-10 and six top-20 finishes this season. In addition, he has fashioned 12 rounds of par of better and seven rounds in the 60’s.

Four birdies over her final nine holes gave McChrystal a closing 69 to claim medalist honors by two strokes at the Bryan National Collegiate in Brown Summit, N.C. Her one-under 215 at Bryan Park’s Champions Course also helped lift the Tigers to the team title.

McChrystal became the seventh golfer in school history to record more than one individual win in her career, having won the LSU Classic earlier this spring.

Golf World’s “College Players of the Week” section highlights a male and a female who have demonstrated outstanding individual play during a seven day period.
