June 26, 2015
Charlottesville, Va. – The Golf Coaches Association of America today announced Virginia men’s golfer Denny McCarthy (Rockville, Md.) has been named a third-team PING All-American. It marks the third consecutive season McCarthy has earned All-America honors.
McCarthy led UVa with a 70.94 stroke average and become the first player in Virginia history to earn All-ACC honors four times during their career. During the 2014-15 season, he had five top-10 outings and topped the Cavaliers at the NCAA Championships with a 29th-place finish.
He posted runner-up finishes at the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate and the U.S. Collegiate. He shot 9-under 63 during the opening round of the U.S. Collegiate to tie the UVa single-round scoring mark.
McCarthy recently finished tied for 42nd at the U.S. Open and was a semifinalist at last year’s U.S. Amateur Championship. He helped the U.S. team to the World Team Amateur Championships last summer.
