| No Comments | No TrackBacks
scodro2.gifSenior golfer Max Scodro has been named to the Golf World 50 Players to Watch list. The accolade goes hand-in-hand with the publication's 2011-12 College Preview issue.

Scodro earns the recognition off of his most successful collegiate season with the Irish that saw him post the lowest stroke average on the team at 73.30. In addition, Scodro finished as the team's top finisher at two tournaments while earning a share of top finisher at one other event.

The Chicago, Ill., native also was named the 2011 BIG EAST Men's Player of the Year after earning medalist honors at the conference championship. He concluded the 54-hole event as the only player in the field below par with a three-round score of 212 (-1).

Scodro prepares to enter his final season following a successful summer amateur circuit that most recently saw him qualify for the match play portion of the U.S. Amateur. He earned a spot in the 64-player, single-elimination draw after finishing three under par (139) during the stroke play portion of the event.

Only the top 10 players selected to the College Players to Watch list are ranked by Golf World. Patrick Cantlay (UCLA), the golfer who defeated Scodro in match play at the U.S. Amateur, headlines the list after claiming NCAA Player of the Year honors last season. The remainder of the top 10 features Peter Uihlein (Oklahoma State), Chris Williams (Washington), Andrew Yun (Stanford), Luke Guthrie (Illinois), James White (Georgia Tech), Blayne Barber (Auburn), Jordan Spieth (Texas), Alex Ching (San Diego) and Patrick Rodgers (Stanford).
