Roman Robledo Named The American Golfer of the Week
March 19, 2014
HOUSTON - Weekly awards continued to pour in Wednesday for University of Houston junior Roman Robledo, who was recognized as the American Athletic Conference Player of the Week.
Winner of his last three tournaments, Robledo was honored earlier this week as Golfweek's National Player of the Week. It also was his second American weekly accolade this season after collecting the award on Feb. 26.
The Harlingen, Texas, native 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 Valspar Invitational at Floridian presented by Insperity in Palm City, Fla. The tournament features one of the nation's top collegiate fields with four top-10 and 11 top-30 teams competing.
