OKLAHOMA CITY - Rice University men's golfer Landon Michelson was named a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar, the Golf Coaches Association of America announced on Wednesday afternoon.
To earn the honor, an NCAA Division I player must be an upperclassman, record a 76.0 or better stroke average while competing in 50 percent or more of a team's competitions on the season, and hold a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher. The organization honored 152 golfers for 2012-13.
In his first year at Rice, Michelson notched a 75.94 stroke average to rank second on the team in a team-best 33 rounds of action. His low round of the year was a 70 in the first round of the Conference USA Championship. He was named to the C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll as well.
As a junior, Michelson paced the Owls in three of the final four tournaments of the season, including 20th place at the C-USA Championship. The Miami, Fla. native spent two seasons at Birmingham Southern College before transferring last summer.
The rising senior has been active this summer as well, tying for fourth at this week's New England Amateur with a 68-74-70--212 (-1) and notching an 11th place finish at the recent Magnolia Amateur with a 71-71-73--215 (+2).
