AUBURN – Former Auburn golfer Glenn Northcutt was named 2009 Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar, announced the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) on Thursday afternoon. A total of 108 student-athletes from NCAA Division I golf made the list.
“A lot of guys go through college and spend all their time on the course,” said Northcutt. “I put an emphasis on school as I did on golf. I was raised to believe that both were important. Now I’m looking forward to the extra time I will get to focus just on my game after graduation.”
The Dothan, Ala., native finished his Auburn career with a 73.18 scoring average, the 8th best in school history. Northcutt also counted 122-of-136 rounds, carded 38 sub-par rounds and earned 13 top-10 finishes through four seasons as a Tiger.
The honor is the 14th occasion an Auburn golfer has received such distinction. A school record three Tigers, including Northcutt, were named Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar following the 2007-08 season.
To be eligible for Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar status an individual must be a junior or senior academically and compete in at least two full years at the collegiate level, participate in 70-percent of his team's competitive rounds or compete in the NCAA Championships, have a stroke average under 76.0 and maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.2. A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.
