Wingo Tabbed To 2015 All-ACC Golf Academic Team

June 25, 2015

NOTRE DAME, Ind. — University of Notre Dame men’s golf graduated senior Tyler Wingo was recognized by the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) on Thursday for academic achievement during his final collegiate season, being named to the 2015 all-ACC Men’s Golf Academic Team.

Wingo is the third Notre Dame player to receive the honor from the ACC, joining fellow 2015 graduate Patrick Grahek and Niall Platt (’14). Grahek and Platt both secured all-ACC academic accolades following the first competitive season for the Irish in the conference in 2014.

To be eligible for consideration for the all-ACC Men’s Golf Academic Team, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester, while maintaining a cumulative 3.00 average during his academic career. The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year award, which was also presented on Thursday to Georgia Tech senior Anders Albertson, was established in the fall of 2007 and is annually awarded to the top junior or senior student-athlete in a respective sport who has maintained a cumulative 3.00 or higher grade point average throughout their career.

Golfers from 10 of the 12 ACC affiliate universities and colleges that sponsor men’s golf were included on the 2015 all-academic team. Reigning ACC champion Georgia Tech led all programs with five honorees, with Clemson, Duke and North Carolina boasting three selections each.

Wingo completed his Notre Dame golf career by appearing in seven tournaments this past season, logging a 75.85 stroke average over 20 rounds as a member of the Irish starting lineup. A total of 17 of his 20 rounds in 2014-15 counted toward the team score utilizing the NCAA five-count-four format.

Over his four seasons at Notre Dame, Wingo appeared in 25 tournaments, carding a lifetime 75.72 stroke average in 67 rounds played. His best career finish came at the 2012 Earl Yestingsmeier Invitational, where the Fairfax, Virginia product fired back-to-back rounds of one-under-par 69 to tie for second place at 212 (74-69-69, +2).
