Iowa senior golfer Vince India has been named the Big Ten men's co-Golfer of the Week, sharing the award with Purdue's William Sjaichudin.

India earned individual medalist honors Sunday after winning Iowa's Hawkeye-TaylorMade Invitational in which he fired consecutive rounds of 71 to earn his third tournament victory of the year.

The honor is the second of the season for India, who also won the Big Ten Golfer of the Week award on April 6 after leading the Hawkeyes to a third-place finish in the LSU National Invitational.

"I'm glad I can keep this kind of string of events going into the spring season," India said. "Hopefully, I can keep it going into finals."

The nation's seventh-ranked golfer also said the national exposure Iowa gains from awards such as this will be beneficial to the program.

"I think what we're doing this year is going to be really good for Iowa golf," India said. "I think [our success this year] will help attract a lot of recruits, and hopefully, we can keep this program after Brad [Hopfinger] and I leave this year as a top-20 program."
