HOUSTON - Fresh off his third consecutive individual title, University of Houston junior Roman Robledo was honored Monday evening as the Golfweek National Player of the Week.
It was Robledo's first national weekly honor and his second weekly award this season. The Harlingen, Texas, native was honored as the American Athletic Conference Golfer of the Week on Feb. 26.
Robledo posted a score of 7-under-par 209 to win the Border Olympics individual title and lead the Cougars to their third straight team championship last weekend. He posted three consecutive sub-par rounds - including a second-round 68 - for his fourth title in 2013-14 and the fifth title of his career.
It also was his fifth individual championship in his last nine events.
This season, Robledo leads the Cougars with a sparkling 70.86 scoring average and 15 rounds of par or better. He has posted eight sub-par scores in his last nine rounds and totaled 10 rounds of par or better during his last 11 rounds.
Robledo and his Houston teammates return to action Monday when they compete at The Floridian Intercollegiate at The Floridian Golf Club in Palm Harbor, Fla. The tournament features one of the nation's top collegiate fields with four top-10 and nine top-25 teams competing.
