MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (October 11, 2021) – After recording a career-low score at the Mountaineer Invitational, Mark Goetz of the West Virginia University golf team has been named the WVU Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by University Apartments.
For the second year in a row, the fifth-year senior shot a career-low on the final day to win his second consecutive Mountaineer Invitational at Pete Dye Golf Club in Bridgeport, West Virginia.
The native of Greensburg, Pennsylvania, shot a career-low 63, one shy of the school record, on the final day. His 9-under-par was the lowest round in school history in relation to par.
Goetz’s three-day total of 202 (69-70-63=202) for 14-under-par was the lowest three-round total in school history, breaking Etienne Papineau’s 203 total in 2019. Goetz had 19 birdies and just five bogeys in the 54-hole event. It was the second win of Goetz’s collegiate career.
Goetz led West Virginia to tie the school record for 18 holes with a final round score of 13-under-par.
WVU finished second in the Mountaineer Invitational at 8-under-par, one shot behind No. 8 NC State.
