HUNTINGTON, W.Va.- Marshall University men’s golf senior Bosten Miller finished tied for fifth after the final round of the Conference USA Championships on Tuesday, earning All-Tournament honors for his two-under performance.
All golfers finishing in the top-five at the tournament were awarded with the honor, and Miller’s score of 214 (72,71,71) saw him finish in fifth alongside Memphis’s Jonathan Fly and Houston’s Roman Robledo. The three players rounded out an All-Tournament team that also included UTEP’s Martin Simonsen (212), SMU’s Max Buckley (209), Memphis’s Jack Belote (209), and UCF’s Greg Eason (208).
The Charleston, W.Va., native also found himself earning recognition in the Marshall record books, establishing a new single-season stroke average record with a mark of 72.97. Miller’s average usurps the previous record holder, Christian Brand (2007-11), who posted a 73.24 just one season ago. The Marshall senior also moved into the top-five for the Marshall career stroke average, posting a four-year mark of 75.0 that currently occupies fourth-place on the all-time list. Shawn Warren (2004-07) holds the record with a career average of 74.0.
By earning a spot on the All-Tournament team, Miller has placed on both the C-USA All-Academic and All-Tournament teams. He will graduate in May with a degree in biology.
