Player of the week: Austin Ernst, LSU
Monday, September 19, 2011
The defending NCAA champion started this fall like she ended last spring – with a victory. Ernst, a sophomore, shot 67-69-67 for a 13-under 203 at Yeamans Hall, lifting LSU to a five-shot team victory over North Carolina on Sept. 13 at the Cougar Classic. Ernst defeated Erica Popson of Tennessee by four shots.
