Golfweek Honors Chance Pipitone

PHILADELPHIA - Penn freshman golfer Chance Pipitone was named the Men's College Player of the Week by Golfweek Magazine; the announcement came Tuesday.

Pipitone received the honor after shooting a scintillating 67-70-65--202 at the NCAA West Regional in Tempe, Ariz. last weekend. His 14-under-par score allowed him to tie for fifth overall and earn an individual bid into the NCAA Golf Championships, which will take place May 30-June 2 in Williamsburg, Va.

Pipitone -- who was runner-up at this year's Ivy League Championships -- has a team-best 74.9 stroke average, and has had four rounds below 70 this season.
