On the strength of four top-six finishes, Yue Xu was named the Southern Conference March Golfer of the Month, the league office announced on Tuesday afternoon. She was named the league’s golfer of the week

on March 28 as well.
The junior was a consistent performer throughout the month, finishing near the top of the leaderboard at four different events. She opened the month in fifth place at the Dayton/Hilton Head Invitational with an 87, as ASU took the top spot among the three competing teams. A week later, she finished sixth at the Spider at St. James with a 79-82-77=238 (+22) to pace the Mountaineers at the event.
Xu then matched a career-best and the program-low 18-hole score with a 69 in the Morehead State Ocala Spring Invitational, while placing fifth for the event. She carded a 69-71-77=217 (+1) at the tournament to lead ASU to a third-place finish.  The Beijing native tied for third and led ASU to a second-straight team title at the Low Country Intercollegiate in Hilton Head Island, S.C. with a solid 77-75=152 (+8).
Following a stellar month competing on the course, Xu is spending the first week of April at The Masters Tournament in Augusta, Ga., where she is working in an internship capacity as a chief interpreter for the Chinese Travel Channel.
Xu and the Apps are hitting their stride as the Southern Conference Tournament approaches. ASU takes on the rest of the league on April 15-17 at Hilton Head’s Moss Creek Course.
