LAS CRUCES, N.M. – The 2010 WAC Player of the Year Tim Madigan helped lead the New Mexico State men’s golf team to a third straight WAC title this past season. His countless hours of practice on the course paid off for Madigan in 2010 but his tireless commitment in the classroom has now been recognized as well. Madigan was named a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-American Scholar by the Golf Coaches Association of America, Thursday, July 8.
In 2009-10, Madigan earned first team All-WAC and WAC Player of the Year honors as he won the 2010 WAC Championships individual title with a three round score of 14-under par, 202 (64-68-70). He carded a final round score of 2-under par, 70. The next closest player in the field was Mark Hubbard of San Jose State and Scott Smith of Nevada at 6-under par. In mid-June, Madigan was named an Academic All-WAC selection as well. Madigan tallied a 71.60 stroke per round average on the season.
A total of 119 players in Division I earned the honor.
