BYU senior Billy Harvey was named Golf World's Collegiate Player of the week in the September 22 issue.
Harvey earned this award after securing his first collegiate win last week at the Tucker Intercollegiate at the University of New Mexico Championship Course in Albuquerque. Harvey's birdies on two of the last four holes also helped BYU beat out seventh-ranked UNLV for the team title. Four days earlier, he placed second at the Nike Northwest Classic in Corvallis, Ore.
In the 1999-2000 season, Harvey had numerous top-ten finishes including a fifth-place finish at last year's Tucker Intercollegiate and a second-place finish at the John Burns Intercollegiate. He won medalist honors at the 1999 Utah State Amateur, 2000 Nevada State Amateur, and the 2000 Pacific Coast Amateur.
Harvey was also named Golf World's Collegiate Player of the week on March 31, following the lone birdie--an 18-footer--in the team playoff between BYU and UNLV at the Morris Williams Intercollegiate. Harvey is a native of Las Vegas, Nevada.
