Luke Sherrod Against a difficult field at the Louisville tournament, Sherrod improved in position each round before closing the tournament with the Govs only under-par round. That final-round 70 allowed him to finish at one-over par for the event.

Out of the four participating Ohio Valley Conference teams, Sherrod was the top performer in the event and named the OVC Golfer of the Week.

Thus far, Sherrod has been the Govs top performer. He was one of two Govs to finish under par at the Marshall Invitational and, last week he overcame a windy day on a tough course to complete his climb.
