Behr Named All-America Scholar

Clemson, S.C.—Clemson graduate Stephen Behr has been named to the Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar team for Division I.  The announcement was made by the College Golf Coaches Association on Wednesday. 

To be eligible for the team 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 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.

Behr graduated from Clemson in May with a 3.92 GPA, but still has another year of eligibility and plans to return to Larry Penley’s golf team that reached the NCAA National Tournament this past year.  He received his degree in financial management.

Behr had the finest season of his career in terms of stroke average this past year with a 72.43 figure, third best on the Clemson team.  The three-year starter had six rounds in the 60s, 11 rounds under par and 18 rounds at par or better.  He finished third at the Hummingbird Invitational in the fall and was 14th at  the ACC Tournament in April, helping he Tigers to a second place finish after entering a playoff with Georgia Tech.
