Brian Mallory Named Moe's Athlete of the Week

DAHLONEGA, GA - Brian Mallory has been named the Moe’s Southwest Grill North Georgia Athlete of the Week after leading the Saints to their first top-10 finish at the Piedmont Invitational announced this afternoon by the Sports Information Office.

Mallory fired his best round of the year, a one-under-par 71, securing him a spot in a four-person playoff where Winston Gibbs of Abraham Baldwin College came away with the victory in the fifth playoff hole.

The Gainesville, Ga., native has a season stroke average of 75.7 to lead the team, and is only player for the Saints to record a round under par. The second place finish for Mallory is the highest finish for any North Georgia golfer this season as he led his team to the school’s highest finish in 7th place in the field of 14 teams.

Mallory and his squad will have two weeks off before taking on Clayton State and West Georgia in head-to-head matches October 12-13, with the Saints playing their-first ever home tournament on the 13th as the Lakers and Wolves come to town to compete at Achasta.
