The first and only Georgia Tech player so far to compete on four Atlantic Coast Conference Championship teams (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012), White earned a spot on the All-ACC team three times (2010, 2011, 2012). He was named a first-team All-American in 2011, and a third-team choice in 2012, when he also received the Byron Nelson Award as the nation’s top senior collegiate golfer. The Acworth, Ga., native won two tournaments in his career, the United States Collegiate Championship and the Puerto Rico Classic, and posted top-10 finishes in 15 other events, two of those in ACC Championships. He was the runner-up in the 2011 NCAA East Regional and tied for eighth in stroke play at the 2011 NCAA Championship. White helped Tech reach match play at the NCAA Championship (top eight teams advance after 72 holes of stroke play) in 2010 and 2011, after the team finished 10th in 2009. He also competed for the United States team in the 2012 Arnold Palmer Cup. Just as strong academically, White was named the ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year and a GCAA All-America Scholar his junior and senior years.
