Matthews named All-American honorable mention

Brandon Matthews was named an honorable mention Division I PING All-American by the Golf Coaches Association of America on Thursday.

“It’s a great feeling to know that you are among the country’s best,” Matthews said. “Getting this means more than you can imagine.  It’s always nice to see your hard work, time and effort pay off in these kind of ways.”

Matthews is coming off of a junior season where he placed in the top-10 in 11 of his 12 tournaments.  His 70.9 stroke average for a season was a new school record and his three-consecutive wins during the year was a new program record.  He also tied Temple’s record for career wins with eight.

Matthews is in the middle of a summer of individual amateur tournaments before returning to Temple in the fall for his senior season.
