Hall Named Second Team All-American by Golfweek

Junior rakes in the 42nd All-America honor all-time, and 21st under Bill McDonald since 2007

COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina men’s golf standout Ryan Hall picked up another accolade as he was named a Golfweek Second Team All-American on Thursday. He was named a PING First Team All-American back on June 1, joining PGA TOUR member Matt NeSmith as the only players in program history to earn first team honors.
The Knoxville, Tenn., native is the 26th different Gamecock golfer (42 All-America honors total) all-time to garner All-America status. Since 2007 under head coach Bill McDonald, South Carolina has now produced 21 All-America honors by 10 different student-athletes.
Hall, the 2021 Albuquerque Regional Champion, wrapped up one of the best single-season performances in Garnet and Black at the 2021 NCAA Men’s Golf Championship (May 28-30), missing the cut for the final round of stroke play by just two shots. He became just the third regional champion in school history with his one-shot victory at UNM’s Championship Course on May 19. He finished in the top-20 in every lineup start during the 2020-21 season with six top-10s, four top-fives and a pair of wins. His first victory of the season (has three career wins) came at the Augusta Haskins Award Invitational on Easter Sunday. He shot 202 (-14) with a bogey free 66 (-6) in the second round and a carded final round 64 (-8), chipping in for eagle at the last hole to force a playoff with Pepperdine All-American Dylan Menante. Hall made birdie on both playoff holes to win and earn a sponsor exemption into the PGA TOUR’s 3M Open this summer in Blaine, Minn. (July 19-25).
On top of his All-America accolades, Hall was a Haskins Award Finalist and Nicklaus Award Finalist. He also was named PING All-Southeast Region and First Team All-SEC.
Hall, alongside fellow All-Americans Ana Pelaez and Pauline Roussin-Bouchard from the Gamecock women’s team, is set to compete in the Arnold Palmer Cup (June 11-13) beginning tomorrow at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Ill. He’s competing for the United States side while Pelaez and Roussin-Bouchard will be playing for the International squad. Live scoring for the Ryder Cup style event will be available via Golfstat.
