Greg Forest Shares C-USA Golfer of the Week Honors

Feb. 17, 2006

ORLANDO - Conference USA announced Friday that UCF freshman golfer Greg Forest and Tulsa junior Mitch Cohlmia were selected as co-golfers of the week for the week ending Feb. 15. Both posted top-five individual finishes and led their teams to fifth-place finishes at their respective tournaments.

Forest tied for second at the UCF/Rio Pinar Intercollegiate after he matched the low round of the tournament with a 4-under-par 68 in third-round action. The 68 was also his career low and helped him jump from a tie for 29th place to the runner-up position and helped his team move up seven spots for a fifth place finish in the 18-team field.

Cohlmia carded a 54-hole score of 7-under par 206 (69-68-69) to place fifth at the PING Arizona Invitational, held at the Arizona National Golf Course. His fifth-place finish out of a field of 89 golfers was the top finish of his career and the round of 68 tied his personal best. The Golden Hurricane placed fifth out of 16 teams.

Forest and the rest of the UCF men's golf team is in action this weekend at the SunTrust Gator Invitational at University Golf Course in Gainesville, Fla.
