NORMAN, Okla. -- Virginia Tech golfer Drew Weaver has been named a 2009 Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars for Division I. The academic team is selected by a committee of the Golf Coaches Association of America.
Weaver, the 2007 British Amateur Champion, was named the 2009 Virginia Tech ACC Male Scholar-Athlete in May, prior to his graduation from Virginia Tech. The High Point, N.C., native led the Hokies in scoring average and final round scoring average this season. He played in the 2007 British Open and the 2008 Masters. Weaver finished fifth at the 2009 ACC Men’s Golf Championship and finished 12th at the 2009 NCAA Men’s Golf Southwest Regional in Austin, Texas in May. A first-team All-ACC selection in 2009, Weaver qualified and made the cut at the 2009 U.S. Open at the famed Black Course of Bethpage State Park in Farmingdale, N.Y., in June.
This is his second consecutive year on the GCAA team. Earlier this summer, he was named a third-team All-American by PING and the GCAA.
Weaver is one of only seven Atlantic Coast Conference golfers and four golfers from the Commonwealth of Virginia to make the list. Only juniors and seniors are eligible to be a Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar and must have at least a 3.2 cumulative grade-point average. In addition, golfers must have less than a 76.0 stroke average. A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university
