– The University of Denver men's golf team had former standout Chris Korte
named to the Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar list in a release from the Golf Coaches Association of America on Wednesday.
Korte made the team for the second time in his four years with the Pioneers. The four-time All-Summit Leaguer was a biology major and posted a GPA of 3.33 in his time with DU.
"Earning Academic All-American takes discipline and great time management, and we are extremely proud of Chris for earning this award for a second year in a row," head coach Erik Billinger
said. "To excel on the course and in the classroom is what we expect from each of our players, and we are proud of Chris for all his hard work and the legacy he left."
To be eligible for Srixon/Cleveland Golf 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 in Division I 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.
Korte, a first-team All-Summit League selection, ranked tied for first with the lowest scoring average in the league this past year at 72.8. The Littleton native also recorded 14 rounds of par or better, a league best.
The Denver men's golf team returns to the links in the fall.
