Vincent named ACC Player of the Month
Hokie junior earns first honor of the fall season

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Virginia Tech golfer Scott Vincent has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Golfer of the Month for the month of September, as selected by the ACC office.

Vincent, a junior from Harare, Zimbabwe, earned medalist honors in both the Golfweek Conference Challenge in Burlington, Iowa (Sept. 15-17) and the VCU Shootout in Manakin-Sobot, Va. (Sept. 23-24). Four of Vincent’s six rounds were par-or-better, including an 8-under-par 64 in the final round of the Golfweek Challenge that matched the current Virginia Tech school record, first set in 2002 by current PGA Tour player Johnson Wagner. The back-to-back tournament victories by Vincent tied another school record first set by current PGA Tour and President’s Cup team member Brendon de Jonge in the fall of 2000.

Vincent’s first-place tying score of 6-under-par 210 in the three-day Golfweek Conference Challenge came against a field that featured two opposing teams ranked among the nation’s top 10 and four teams ranked among the nation’s top 25 by both the Golf World/Nike Golf Coaches Poll and in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings. He followed the win in Iowa by posting a 10-under-par 206 in the VCU Shootout, an effort which earned him Golfweek Player of the Week honors.

This marks the first time that a Hokie golfer has ever won this award. Entering this weekend’s Brickyard Collegiate Golf Championship, Vincent is ranked No. 18 nationally in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings.
