Big Ten Golfer of the Week:
David Lipsky, Northwestern
Jr. - La Canada, Calif. - La Canada
David Lipsky was a perfect 4-0 to lead Northwestern to the team crown at the Big Ten Match Play Championship over the weekend. Northwestern’s first match against Wisconsin came down to three battles on the 18th hole, and Lipsky was one of the Wildcats to hold on for a one-up victory. Against third-seeded Michigan, Lipsky won a commanding 5-and-4 decision. His biggest win of the weekend came versus second-seeded Iowa, when he came from three holes down with eight to play to win his match. The triumph proved to be the difference in a 3.5-2.5 victory that sent the Wildcats into the Match Play final. The California native posted his fourth victory over the two-day event in NU’s sweep of Purdue for the title. The selection marks the second Big Ten Golfer of the Week award in Lipsky’s collegiate career.
