Burton Named Honorable Mention Men's Golf All-SAC
ROCK HILL, S.C. -- Catawba junior Trey Burton has been named a 2018 South Atlantic Conference Men’s Golf honorable mention all-conference pick. Newberry’s Carlos Leandro was voted the Golfer of the Year, while Lincoln Memorial’s Dan Bradbury was named the Freshman of the Year. Newberry’s Howard Vroon was named the Coach of the Year.
Burton has a 72.95 stroke average over 21 rounds during his nine tournaments this season. He has led the team at six events with four top 10 finishes. He has three top five placements over the last four tournaments leading up to the SAC Championships.
His top five run began with a fourth at the Rendleman Invitational and was followed by a third at the Hargett Memorial. At the Hargett, Burton shot his season low score of 69. Last week, Burton took fourth at the Tennessee River Rumble.
Leandro, a senior from Aljaraque, Spain, is ranked No. 16 nationally by Golfstat and was a Second Team All-American last season after finishing 10th in the stroke play portion of the 2017 NCAA Division II Men’s Golf Championships. He has finished in the top 10 in six of Newberry’s eight tournaments this season and has a 71.69 stroke average.
Bradbury, from Yorkshire, England, has finished in the top-12 in five of the Railsplitter’s 10 tournaments this season and he has a 73.52 adjust stroke average for the season. He shot rounds of 75 and 71 to win the Tennessee River Rumble in the final tournament of the regular season.
Vroon, the reigning Golf Pride Grips Southeast Region Coach of the Year, has led Newberry to arguably its most successful run in school history. The Wolves have been ranked as high as No. 3 in the Golfstat rankings this season and are currently slotted eighth.
The 2018 South Atlantic Conference Men’s Golf Championship will run for Sunday, April 8 through Tuesday, April 10, at Cobbs Glen Country Club in Anderson, S.C. Tee times will begin at 8:30 a.m. on all three days. Live results for all three rounds can be found online at www.thesac.com.
