After being recognized for his excellent play all season by winning the Big Ten Golfer of the Week award twice this spring, Iowa's Vince India can add another award to his trophy case.

India was presented with the Les Bolstad Trophy Sunday after the Big Ten championships.

Named after the late Les Bolstad — who served as Minnesota's golf coach for 30 years — the award is given annually to the golfer who records the lowest stroke average during the season.

The third-ranked player in the country tallied an impressive 71.08 stroke average during his senior year.

India has had his best individual season as a Hawkeye and has recorded three tournament victories — the Golfweek Conference Challenge, the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate, and the Hawkeye TaylorMade Invitational.

India is Iowa's second Bolstad winner; former Hawkeye Brad Klapprott won the trophy in 1992 with a stroke average of 74.

"I couldn't be happier about this," India told hawkeyesports.com. "This has been a really good year for Iowa golf and for me. It's a real good cap to my Big Ten career."
