Norman, Okla. – Georgia Tech All-America golfer James White, who completed his eligibility with the Yellow Jackets this past spring, has been named an All-America Scholar by the Golf Coaches Association for the second straight year.
White, who graduated from Tech with his degree in Management in May, becomes the 11th Tech golfer to earn the honor twice (only juniors and seniors are eligible). The Acworth, Ga., native also was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year this past spring for the second time, received an ACC Post-Graduate Scholarship and earned second-team CoSIDA Academic All-America honors.
On the golf course, White was a first-team All-America in 2011 and a third-team choice in 2012 while also being named a co-recipient of the Byron Nelson Award, which goes to the nation’s top senior player. He earned All-ACC honors three times and is the only Tech player ever to play in four ACC Championship teams. He played for the United States team in the Palmer Cup matches last month.
The Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars for Divisions I, II and the NAIA were announced by the GCAA on Wednesday. A total of 146 players in Division I, 52 in Division II and 14 in NAIA earned the honor. Additionally, 26 honorees were added to the previously released Division III Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars. 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 70-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.
