By Doug Fitzgerald published September 18, 2008

Tyler Bishop of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference men's golfer of the week, the conference announced Thursday.

In the first men's RMAC event of the season, the senior from Longmont shot a three-round total of 204 to lead the Mountain Lions to a first-place team finish. Bishop shot a 72 and 65 on the first day, followed by a third round mark of 67 on the par 72 course. His 65 mark was the lowest by any golfer and his 67 tied for the second-lowest score in the tournament.

Bishop finished eight strokes ahead of Western New Mexico's Scott Crichton, who had the next best score.

Through six rounds so far this season, Bishop has yet to shoot over par.
