Utah State's [University] Tanner Higham has been named a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar it was announced Wednesday [July 31, 2013] by the Golf Coaches Association of America.


Overall, Higham was one of 152 Division I golfers to earn All-America Scholar honors from Cleveland Golf/Srixon, including one of seven from the Western Athletic Conference and one of six from the state of Utah.


Higham, a junior from Shelley, Idaho, has a cumulative 3.98 grade point average majoring in nutrition, dietetics and food sciences.


During the 2012-13 season, Higham played 28 rounds and had a team-best scoring average of 73.57. Higham’s best individual finish of the year was tying for first this spring at the Southern Utah, hosted Pat Hicks Thunderbird Invitational, with a 2-under 142 (70-72), marking the first time since 1996 that an Aggie golfer tied for first or won a tournament. He also finished second at the U.S. Air Force-hosted Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational last fall as he shot a 6-under 210 (70-70-70) for USU’s best individual finish at the time since 1997.


Higham finished the season tied for 11th at the 2013 WAC Championships with a 9-over 225 (73-74-78) helping Utah State finish in sixth-place in the 10-team field with a 51-over 915 (292-312-311).


To be eligible for Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar status 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 or compete in the NCAA Championships, 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.
