CJ Swift Earns GCAA All-America Scholar Honors

July 21, 2016

NORMAN, Okla. - Graduated Marquette redshirt senior CJ Swift was named a Division I Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar for the second straight season, the Golf Coaches’ Association of America (GCAA) announced on Wednesday.

The 2015-16 season is the third in program history where the Golden Eagles have had multiple players represented as All-America Scholars.

To be eligible for Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar status an individual 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. 

Swift posted a 75.2 scoring average in his senior campaign, one of three MU players to log 26 or more rounds.  He had the distinction of being the MU’s only four-time starter at the BIG EAST Championship on the active roster in 2015-16.  A four-year starter and five-year member of the program, he finished his career 14th all-time at Marquette in scoring average (75.57), teeing off in 97 career collegiate rounds.  Swift helped Marquette to its second BIG EAST title in 2015 and started in the Golden Eagles’ trip to NCAA Regional play at Noblesville, Indiana.
