Player of the Week: Matt Hill, N.C. State
Wednesday, July 22, 2009
Sophomore Matt Hill shot three consecutive 2-under-par 69s for a 6-under 207 to win the NCAA Division I Championship. Hill, who was playing as an individual, put an exclamation point on one of the greatest seasons in NCAA history. It was his eighth victory and seventh of the spring. He joins Tiger Woods (Stanford, 1996) as the only player since the inception of NCAA postseason regional play to finish first in his conference (co-medalist, Atlantic Coast), region (Central) and NCAA finals.
