San Antonio – Picking up his game with fellow standout Matt Vela limited due to injury, St. Mary’s senior men’s golfer Jeff Rein had one of his best showings of the year at this week’s Dallas Baptist University Invitational.
And on Wednesday, the senior from San Antonio was named the Heartland Conference Men’s Golfer of the Week for his efforts.
Rein, a Central Catholic High School graduate, tied for third place individually to fuel the Rattlers to an eighth-place finish in the team standings.
Rein fired a 65 in the opening round to shoot atop the leaderboard, and followed that up with a 73 and 70 for a three-round total of 208.
Rein leads the Heartland Conference in scoring average at 72.0 over 13 rounds of golf this season.
This marks the third time Rein has been named the conference’s Golfer of the Week this season.
