Mayorkas Named GolfWeek Player of the Week

Feb. 18, 2004

UCLA's Charlotte Mayorkas, who won the Regional Challenge last week with a record score, has been named the GolfWeek Player of the Week, the magazine announced today.

The award is the first conferred by GolfWeek and will continue throughout the collegiate season.

Last week at the Regional Challenge, hosted by Ohio State at the Palos Verdes Golf Club in Southern California, Mayorkas fired rounds of 66-69-72-207 to pace the Bruins to a 32-shot first place finish. Mayorkas beat teammate Susie Mathews, who finished second, by 10 shots. Her 54-hole score of 207 is a school record.

"We're very proud of Charlotte and all that she has accomplished as a player and as a person," said Head Coach Carrie Forsyth. "Every great team needs a leader, and Charlotte has been our leader for the past two seasons. Her finish at the Regional Challenge was spectacular, and just a hint of great things to come."

This season, Mayorkas has recorded five consecutive Top 20 finishes, including four straight Top 10s. She leads the team with a stroke average of 72.0, six rounds under par and two rounds under 70.

She was ranked fourth nationally in the GolfWeek/Sagarin (Feb. 15) poll.

Last season, she earned First-Team All-America honors from the NCGA and First-Team All-Pac-10 honors. She led the Bruins with a stroke average of 74.0, five Top 10 finishes and six rounds under par. She won her first tournament, the ASU Invitational, with a record score (to par) of 209 (-7). She also set a single round school record for lowest score by posting a 66 (-6) in the first round at ASU.
