Among the slew of athletic star power at CSU, one name in

particular floats under the radar: senior golfer Nolan Martin.

Following his second place finish last week at the John Burns

Intercollegiate tournament in Hawaii to open the spring golf

season, Martin reached No. 11 in the nation in Golfweek’s weekly

collegiate rankings.

Martin’s finish at Hawaii marked his sixth top 10 finish dating

back to the fall golf season.

In the tournament, Martin shattered school records while coming

within one stroke of tournament champion Spencer Levine of New


He compiled rounds of 67, 71 and 64, respectively, to finish

with an overall score of 202.That final round score of 64 tied the

school record for the lowest single round score and his 202 total

is a school record for a three-round tournament.

Furthermore, with a 69.52 per round average that dates back to

the 2003 fall season, Martin is on pace to break the school record

and his six top 10 finishes put him within one of Jeff Fujimoto’s

school record of seven.
