Huskey, Miles and Stevens named All-American Scholars

Fourth consecutive season for Carolina with multiple All-American Scholar honorees.

NORMAN, Okla. — Senior Keenan Huskey, junior Scott Stevens and junior Will Miles were named Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-American Scholars on Wednesday by the Golf Coaches Association of America. Huskey becomes a two-time selection, while Stevens and Miles are first-time honorees.

To be eligible for Srixon/Cleveland 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, have a stroke-average under 76.0, and maintain a minimum cumulative career 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.

Huskey finished his illustrious Gamecock career in May at NCAA Regionals second on the career scoring average list (71.66) and T-6th all-time with six career top-10 finishes. He was one of two players to play in all 12 events in 2017-18 for the second consecutive season and finished second on the team with a 71.50 scoring average, the eighth best scoring average all-time and the third lowest scoring average all-time by a senior. He was named SEC Golfer of the Week on Feb. 21 after winning the 2018 All-American Intercollegiate (Feb. 16-18) in Humble, Texas. He went toe-to-toe with 2017 NCAA Champion Braden Thornberry of Ole Miss in the final round shooting a 7-under 65. His 54-hole score of 201 (-15) at the event T-4th lowest mark in program history. His four career victories are T-2nd on the all-time wins list at Carolina with fellow All-Americans Matt NeSmith and Carl Paulson.

Miles played in 11 of the team’s 12 tournaments in 2017-18, finishing third on the team with a 73.00 scoring average. He notched one top-five finish and three top-20s. The Hilton Head Island, S.C., native was outstanding during the fall slate, tallying a 71.20 scoring average in the team’s five tournaments en route to four top-25 finishes. He shot a career-best 204 (-9) at the 2017 Ka’anapali Collegiate Classic (Nov. 3-5) in Hawaii to finish fourth and help the team to a runner-up showing.

Like Huskey, Stevens also played in all 12 events during the 2017-18 season leading the team with a 71.44 scoring average, 10 rounds in the 60s and 24 rounds of par or better in 36 outings. His scoring average ranked as the seventh best single-season stroke average all-time and the fourth-lowest scoring average by a junior in program history. He led the team with two top-five finishes and tied for the team lead with seven top-20s. The Chattanooga, Tenn., native ended the season strong after finishing T-11th at the NCAA Bryan Regional (May 14-16) thanks to a 54-hole total of 214 (-2). He carded a bogey-free 4-under 68 in the final round. His season-best finish came at the 2017 Ka’anapali Collegiate Classic (Nov. 3-5) in Hawaii after earning runner-up medalist honors. Stevens carded an 11-under 202, T-7th lowest 18-hole score in program history.

All three student-athletes, who have excelled in the classroom since day one on campus, were named to the 2018 SEC Spring Academic Honor Roll.

South Carolina men’s golf has produced 35 GCAA All-American Scholar honors in its history. Twenty-four of those honors have come under head coach Bill McDonald. Since 2007, McDonald has produced multiple All-America Scholars in the same year on seven different occasions.
