Timmy Hildebrand

The Big Ten office announced that this week's Big Ten Golfer of the Week was awarded to Purdue sophomore Timmy Hildebrand.

The Westfield, Indiana native finished tied for third with a 54-hole total of 5-under par 211 (74-67-70) at the Puerto Rico Classic. His total of 211 was the second-lowest score of his career.

His second-round 67 was a career-best round and the lowest for a Boilermaker this season. Hildebrand has recorded two straight top-10 finishes and has played the last two events a combined 12-under par.

Hildebrand is tied for the team lead in stroke average at 72.71 strokes per round, the sixth-best average in school history. He leads the team in top-20 finishes (4), rounds of par or better (8), birdies (53) and has had a team-best seven consecutive scoring rounds.

This marks the first weekly honor for Hildebrand and the first time this year that a Purdue golfer has been honored by the Big Ten. The men's golf team will play next at the Desert Mountain Intercollegiate on March 4 and 5, in Scottsdale, Arizona.
