Hamilton College men's golfer Greg Scott '14 (New Haven, Vt./Mount Abraham Union HS) was selected to the 2011 Division III PING All-America team by the Golf Coaches Association of America on May 13.
Scott was one of 17 golfers on the third team, and one of 37 All-America honorees from NCAA Division III programs. Earlier this month, he was the Northeast Region representative on the 2011 Division III all-freshmen team, and a Division III all-region selection.
Scott posted eight top 10 finishes and placed in the top five in five tournaments. He was a medalist three times and tied for first at another tournament. He earned 2010 New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) all-conference second team honors after he tied for seventh at the NESCAC championship qualifier.
Scott's 18-hole stroke average was 74.6 for 21 rounds in 2010-11. Nineteen of his 21 scores were better than 80. His worst round was an 81. He played nine rounds in the spring without anything worse than a bogey on any hole.
Scott saved his best performance for last. He ran away with medalist honors and helped Hamilton to the team title at the SUNY Oswego Spring Invitational on April 30 and May 1. He tied a team record with a 4-under 67 in the first round, and posted a 72 on the second day to finish 11 shots ahead of the field. His two-day total of 139 is a program record.
Scott is the third Hamilton All-American golfer. Ward Wettlaufer was on the first team in 1958 and 1959, and Steve Elkins '90 was honorable mention in 1990.
