PROVIDENCE, R.I. - After finishing tied for second at the Florida Atlantic University Spring Break Championship in Delray Beach, Fla., this past weekend, senior Doug Fortner (Tustin, Calif./Foothill) was named the BIG EAST men's Golfer of the Week it was announced by the conference on Tuesday evening. It marks Fortner's second consecutive BIG EAST Golfer of the Week honor.

In the opening round of the FAU Spring Break Championship, Fortner shot a career-low round of 64 (-7) at the Gleneagles Country Club, etching his name in the Irish record books. His seven-under par score tied for the lowest single-round under-par score in program history, which was previously set by Mark Baldwin during the 2004-05 season. The 64 strokes used to complete his opening 18 holes placed Fortner at second all-time for lowest single-round stroke total, trailing only Baldwin - who needed just 63 shots to finish his seven-under par round.

On March 16, Fortner was also named the BIG EAST men's golfer of the week after capturing medalist honors at the Bandon Dunes Championship, marking his first career win with the Irish. For the season, Fortner carries a team best 73.86 stroke average and in Notre Dame four spring events, Fortner has improved his stroke average 73.00. With his second place showing at the FAU Spring Break Championship, Fortner has now recorded seven top-five career finishes with the Irish.

Fortner and the Irish return to action on Sun., April 18 at the BIG EAST Championship. This year's tournament will be contested at the Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club in Palm Harbor, Fla.
