NORMAN, Okla. – Former Colorado State golfer Zahkai Brown was one of 146 golfers – including two Mountain West peers – named as a Division I Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America scholar Wednesday by the Golf Coaches Association of America.
Brown, who graduated in the spring, turned in an outstanding senior campaign in helping the Rams to their sixth consecutive NCAA regional in 2011-12.
A product of Arvada, Colo., Brown competed in all 33 rounds for the Rams last season, compiling a stroke-average of 71.21. He shot a season-low round of 65 at April’s PING Cougar Classic, earning the tournament title with a three-round score of 205 (-11). Brown boosted the Rams to the NCAA regional with a team best seven-under finish at the MW Championships, finishing tied for second in the field.
Brown also exceled in the classroom where he boasted a 3.27 grade-point average in business administration.
To be eligible for Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar status on the Division I level, an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least two full years at the collegiate level, participate in 70-percent of their team’s competitive rounds, or compete in the NCAA Championships and have a stroke-average under 76.0 and maintain a minimum cumulative 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.
Brown was accompanied on the list by two other MW golfers:
John Catlin, New Mexico
John De Beer, TCU
