Trio Tabbed All-America Scholars

Will Gordon, Patrick Martin and John Augenstein honored for outstanding work in classroom

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Will Gordon, Patrick Martin, and John Augenstein were named as All-American Scholars by the Golf Coaches Association of America on Wednesday for their work in the classroom in their Vanderbilt golf careers.

To be eligible for Srixon/Cleveland Golf 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, have a stroke-average under 76.0 in Division I, 78.0 in Division II, 78.0 in NAIA and 79.0 in Division III, and maintain a minimum cumulative career 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.

The trio becomes the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd Commodore all-time selections to the team, with Martin and Gordon making their second All-America scholar team and Augenstein making his first All-America Scholar appearance. Gordon, a first-team All-American and SEC Player of the Year, and Martin, a four-time GCAA All-American, are currently playing on the PGA MacKenzie Tour in Canada, while Augenstein, who was a third-team All-American in 2018-19, will return for his senior season this fall.
