NORMAN, Okla. - On Wednesday, the 2014 Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars for Divisions I, II and the NAIA were announced by the GCAA. A total of 207 players in Division I, 75 in Division II and 11 in NAIA earned the honor. Among the student-athlete scholars, one honoree was Tennessee's Danny Keddie.
To be eligible for Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar status an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in 50-percent of his team's competitive rounds or compete in the NCAA Championships, have a stroke-average under 76.0 in Division I, 78.0 in Division II, 77.0 in NAIA and 79.0 in Division III, 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.
Keddie highlighted his junior season with a runner-up finish at the Bobby Nichols Intercollegiate, the best finish of his career. The Lincoln, England, native finished his junior season with a 73.31 stroke average, six rounds of par or better, and a low round best of 66 at the Bobby Nichols. Keddie will graduate with a degree in Accounting.
The All-America Scholar recognition is just one of many honors received by the Tennessee men's golf program for their achievements in the classroom this season. Head coach Jim Kelson's team was awarded with the Tennessee Male Scholar Athlete Team of the Year for a second time earlier this year at the annual Volscars program.
