PROVO, Utah — The Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) named BYU men's golfers Chad Hardy and Kelton Hirsch as 2018-19 All-American Scholars on Wednesday. 

The criteria for the GCAA All-American Scholar Team are some of the most rigorous in all of college athletics, some of which include maintaining a 3.2 GPA and participating in at least 50 percent of the team’s competitions.

Hardy and Hirsch both had strong individual showings throughout the 2018-19 season. Hardy placed in the top-20 three times last season, including an eighth-place finish at the Nick Watney Invitational. Hirsch carded his lowest score of the year at the NCAA Pullman Regional, where he shot a 207 (-3) while helping the Cougars earn a berth to the NCAA Championships.

Hardy is heading into his junior year and is majoring in finance, while Hirsch is also prepping for his junior year and is majoring in strategic management.

A record-setting 540 men’s collegiate golfers were named to the team.
