Three UCLA Golfers Earn Coaches All-America Honors
June 20, 2012
Three UCLA golfers were selected to the Golf Coaches Assn. of America All-America team, the organization announced this week.
Cantlay, who announced Tuesday that he was turning professional, earned GCAA All-America honors for the second straight year. As a freshman in 2011, he earned consensus First-Team All-America honors. He finished his UCLA career by playing 65 rounds in 35-under par and recorded a scoring average of 70.7.
After battling a hand injury last season, Figueiredo improved his scoring average more than two strokes this season. He also won the Cal Poly Invitational, led the team with a 97% counter ratio and 17 rounds under par.
Arboleda, the reigning Southern California Golf Assn. Match Play champion, also enjoyed a season of improvement, dropping his scoring average more than 1.5 strokes and recording a 90% counter ratio. At the NCAA Championship last month, he tied for 13th in stroke play.
