Stevens Named PING Third Team All-American

Four-year starter becomes 23rd golfer in program history to earn All-America honors

NORMAN, Okla. — Senior Scott Stevens was named a 2019 PING Third Team All-American, the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) announced on Thursday. He becomes the 23rd Gamecock golfer all-time to earn All-America status.
Stevens had a standout final year at Carolina, leading the team in scoring average (70.59), rounds of par or better (26), top-five finishes (3), top-10 finishes (5) and top-20 finishes (10). The 2019 First Team All-SEC selection helped lead the Gamecocks back to the NCAA Championship this season. He T-3rd at the NCAA Pullman Regional after matching a career 54-hole low, shooting 198 (-12) at Palouse Ridge Golf Club.
The Chattanooga, Tenn., native finished his time in Garnet and Black with the lowest career scoring average in program history at 71.57. He started every tournament the past four seasons for the Gamecocks. Stevens’ 20 career top-10 finishes are T-3rd most all-time. His eight career top-fives are T-7th most all-time.
Stevens was also a standout student at Carolina, earning GCAA Scholar All-America honors in 2018. He graduated this spring with a degree in tourism management. Stevens, who finished school with an impressive 3.814 GPA, was named to the President’s List (4.0 GPA) twice, and the Dean’s list (3.5 GPA or higher) six times.
Since 2007 under head coach Bill McDonald, South Carolina has now garnered 16 All-America honors by seven different student-athletes. Stevens is the first PING All-American since Gamecock great Matt NeSmith, who earned First Team honors in 2016 to finish his career as a three-time All-American.
