UTEP Golf’s Corner Named to 2018 InTouch Credit Union All-Academic Team

IRVING, Texas – For his work on the golf course and the classroom, UTEP men’s golf senior Charles Corner was recognized by Conference USA as one of five men’s golf student-athletes named to the 2018 InTouch Credit Union All-Academic Team, the league announced Friday.

“He’s [Corner] is a phenomenal student-athlete,” head coach Scott Lieberwirth said. “He does everything right, in the classroom he works really hard and he’s really successful and it translates over to the golf course as well. He’s been our best player this year and I’m really proud of Charlie and what he’s brought to our program. He’s been a great player, a great student and a good ambassador of our program. This is a very high honor and he’s extremely worthy of it.”

Corner made his way onto the all-academic squad with a 3.60 in finance. The Canada product is a returner from the 2017 C-USA championship squad, and has finished at the top of the Miner scorecard in four of five spring tournaments. He has constructed a team-best 71.5 stroke average through 10 events with three top-five finishes.

His second-place showing at the Price’s Give ‘Em Five Invitational lifted UTEP to a team crown. Corner is a multi-C-USA Honor Roll winner and Academic Medal recipient and was also an all-conference second team selection and a Golf Coaches Association of America Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar.

Also making the all-academic list was Marshall’s Alex Weiss, Middle Tennessee duo James Beckner and Chip Thomas, and Rice’s Mitchell Meissner.

The Miners will begin their quest to defend their C-USA title beginning April 22 through April 25 at the Texarkana Country Club in Texarkana, AR.
