Thursday, March 18, 2004



Elmhurst, Ill.—The Mid-Continent Conference released its list of Golfers of the Week through the first two months of the spring season, and Centenary's John Kizer has been honored twice for his performances in Centenary's last two events.

At the Moe O'Brien Invitational at Lake Charles County Club on March 1-2, Kizer shot 72-75-72 to finish in a tie for 13th place with a three-over-par 219. He helped the Gents claim sixth place in the tournament with an 891, 27-over-par.

This past weekend, Kizer continued his solid play with a 19th place finish at the Sam Houston Bearkat Classic. He shot an even-par 72 in the final round, helping the Gents move into 11th place in the team competition.

Kizer, a native of Brighton, Mich., has been Centenary's most consistent golfer this season, finishing as the Gents' top golfer in four events, including all three spring events the team has entered so far. In 14 competitive rounds, Kizer has shot even-par 72 in four rounds and is averaging 74.4 strokes per round.

Kizer and the rest of the Centenary men's golf team are now practicing for the Hal Sutton Intercollegiate Tournament, to be held at The Golf Club at StoneBridge on April 5-6.
