Twenty-thirteen UCLA graduate Pedro Figueiredo earned Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar honors for the second consecutive year, the Golf Coaches Assn. of America announced this week.
Currently a professional golfer playing in Europe, Figueiredo graduated in June with a degree in Economics. He boasted a 3.62 cumulative grade point average and was an 11-time (out of 12) member of the Director’s Honor Roll. In addition, he earned All-Pac-12 Academic honors three times, and twice (2012 and 2013) was a member of the first-team.
On the golf course, Figueiredo was a four-year letterman, who earned GCAA All-America honors in 2012 and 2013, and was a three-time all-conference selection. He won three individual titles during his career, including a pair of victories in his senior season. He averaged 72.0 in 127 career rounds with 25 Top 20 results, 43 rounds under par and 25 rounds under 70.
A native of Azeitao, Portugal, he has represented his country and Europe in dozens of international tournaments, most recently the Palmer Cup in Delaware last month.
To earn a spot on the GCAA All-Scholar list, nominees must be upperclassmen, compete in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in 50% of their team’s competitive rounds, average better than 76.0 per round and maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.2.
