MURFREESBORO - Middle Tennessee junior golfer Payne Denman has been named the Conference USA Golfer of the Week as announced by the league office on Wednesday.

Denman, from Riverwatch, TN, led the Blue Raiders to the 2014 General Hackler Championship at TPC Myrtle Beach by finishing 11th overall with a 222 total. The General Hackler field had nine of 12 teams ranked in the top 100, including No. 23 Kent State who was a 2013 National Championship participant and four others who competed in the NCAA Regionals.
