Trio of UTEP Men’s Golfers Honored as Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars

NORMAN, Ok. – UTEP 2018 graduates Charles Corner and Nicklas Pihl, and rising senior Settavut Paradee were recognized for their outstanding performances in the classroom as well as the golf course.

The trio of UTEP men’s golfers were named Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars as announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) on Wednesday. Corner, Pihl and Paradee were among a record 265 student-athletes in Division I who were honored.

Scholars for Division I 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, 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.

For Corner and Pihl, it is their second year in a row being honored by the GCAA.

Corner and Pihl each recently graduated with a degree in finance, while the pair were also named to the Conference USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll for the fourth consecutive year. Paradee was named to the C-USA Honor Roll for a third straight year.

Corner is coming off a spectacular season, leading the Miners in top 10 finishes (five), while being the top finisher in five events during the 2017-18 season. Corner played in 14 tournaments, including the NCAA Championships in Stillwater, Okla. On the season, Corner produced a team-best 72.1 stroke average.

Pihl played in 12 tournaments and finished as the top Miner three times, including the 2018 C-USA Championship in Texarkana, Ark. Pihl tallied a 73.9 stroke average.

Paradee played in 12 tournaments and fashioned a 74.8 stroke average. Paradee tied as the top UTEP finisher at the Gene Miranda Invitational in Colorado Springs, Co.
