Men’s college golf player of the week: Joe Highsmith, Pepperdine


Joe Highsmith earned his first collegiate victory in model.

The Pepperdine junior gained final week’s Western Intercollegiate after a threeway playoff went 4 further holes. The Lakewood, Washington, native made par to win at Pasatiempo Golf Club in Santa Cruz, California, defeating BYU’s Carson Lundell. San Diego State’s Puwit Anupansuebsai was eradicated after the third playoff gap.

“Joe hit it really well, he was really impressive,” said Pepperdine head coach Michael Beard. “He’s been knocking on the door a little bit and to be able to close the deal was super special.”

“That was absolute craziness. Obviously the 20-footer in the playoff was crazy,” mentioned Highsmith of his prolonged par save on the second playoff gap. “It may not have looked like it out there, but I was definitely feeling the nerves but was able to handle it pretty well. It’s been a while since I was in that position. This was great, it means a lot to win it here, it’s really cool for me.”
