by Steve Kirkland

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. –– New Mexico’s Bastien Amat was named Mountain West Co-Golfer of the Week, the conference announced Monday. Amat was honored for the first time in his career after a runner-up finish at the Thunderbird Collegiate in Phoenix.

Amat shot a career-low 12-under at the Thunderbird Collegiate to finish T-2nd with Caden Fioroni of UNLV, with whom he shares the weekly Mountain West honor. He shot rounds of 67-66-68 to record his second straight top-five finish.

It is the fourth Mountain West Golfer of the Week honor for the Lobos this season, as Amat joins Sam Choi, who won the award three times.

The Lobos travel to Washington this week for the 2022 Mountain West Championship, held Friday-Sunday at Gold Mountain Golf Club in Bremerton.
