Nebraska’s Cassie Deeg captured the first Big Ten Golfer-of-the-Week honor of her career, when the conference announced its first award winner of the season on Wednesday, Sept. 11.
Deeg, a sophomore from Hugo, Minn., stormed to her first career collegiate title by winning the 2013 Chip-N Club Invitational at Wilderness Ridge Golf Course in Lincoln with a career-best tournament total of 213 (72-71-70). Deeg, whose previous career-best tournament score was 221, posted the second top-10 finish of her career. She defeated tournament runner-up and senior teammate Steffi Neisen (217) by four strokes to claim individual medalist honors.
Deeg helped power the Huskers to their first team tournament title since 2008. With Deeg leading the charge, Nebraska carded the best three-round tournament score (874) in Chip-N Club Invitational history.
Deeg and Neisen will return to their home state to lead the Huskers at the Minnesota Invitational, Sept. 16-17.
