CONWAY, S.C – Recently graduated Coastal Carolina University men’s golfer Lindsay Renolds was named a Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars for Divisions I by the Golf Coaches Association of America. This was the second year in a row that Renolds garnered the honor, as a total of 96 players earned the honor in Division I this year. 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 in Division I 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.
Renolds, an Honorable Mention All-American last year, earned his second All-Big South honors of his career this year after tying for third at the 2008 Big South Conference Championship and helping the Chanticleers to their fifth straight conference crown. A native of British Columbia, Renolds averaged 74.5 strokes per round in 29 rounds played, tying for the most competitive rounds this season. His other top-20 finish of the year came at the Bank of Tennessee Classic at The Ridges, where he tied for 18th with a 2-under 214.
