University of Houston junior Roman Robledo has been recognized as the American Athletic Conference Player of the Week on March 19. Winner of his last three tournaments, Robledo was honored as Golfweek’s National Player of the Week. It also was his second American weekly accolade this season after collecting the award on Feb. 26. The Harlingen, Texas native posted a score of 7-under-par 209 to win the Border Olympics individual title and lead the Cougars to their third straight team championship last weekend. He posted three consecutive sub-par rounds - including a second-round 68 - for his fourth title in 2013-14 and the fifth title of his career. It also was his fifth individual championship in his last nine events.
This season, Robledo has led the Cougars with a sparkling 70.86 scoring average and 15 rounds of par or better. He has posted eight sub-par scores in his last nine rounds and totaled 10 rounds of par or better during his last 11 rounds.
Robledo and his Houston teammates competed at the Valspar Invitational at Floridian presented by Insperity in Palm City, Florida, beginning Monday, March 24. The tournament features one of the nation’s top collegiate fields with four top-10 and 11 top-30 teams competing. Following the Valspar Invitational at Floridian, the Cougars will compete at the 3M Augusta Invitational, hosted by GRU Augusta on April 5-6 at Forest Hills Golf Club in Augusta, Ga.
From there, the team will conclude its regular-season slate when it takes part at the Reunion Intercollegiate, hosted by Mississippi at Reunion Golf and Country Club in Madison, Miss.
