Clemson, S.C.—Clemson rising senior William Nottingham has been named an Academic Scholar by the Collegiate Golf Coaches Association for the 2018-19 academic year. The native of Kingsport, Tenn is the first Clemson golfer named to this team since 2016.
It is the first selection for Nottingham for this award, but he has earlier been named to the Academic All-ACC team twice, including this year. Nottingham has over a 3.5 GPA as a business administration major.
Nottingham was a starter on Clemson’s eighth-ranked team this past year when he played in all 12 tournaments and 37 rounds. He posted a 73.59 stroke average with nine under-par rounds and four at par. He had four rounds in the 60s and one top 10 finish. His best performance was a 15th place finish at the Nike Collegiate last September.
The 6-4 golfer holds the Clemson record for low score in a round with a 62 in the second round of the Wolfpack Open on April 14, 2017. A veteran of 31 career tournaments and 93 rounds, Nottingham has a 73.81 career stroke average with 20 under-par rounds and one more rounds at par. His 267 career birdies will be more than any other active Tiger when the 2019-20 season begins.
