Cross, Wolcott, named Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars

Tennessee male golfers Spencer Cross and Hunter Wolcott have been honored as Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars, the Golf Coaches Association of America announced Thursday.

To be eligible for nomination to the Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar, one must play in 50% of their team’s competitive rounds, have a stroke average below 76.0 in NCAA Division I, and maintain a minimum career cumulative average of 3.2. A recipient must also be of high character and in good standing at their college or university.

This is the third honor of Cross and Wolcott’s Tennessee careers, as they were both named Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars in 2020 and 2021. The duo were also named to the Academic Honor Roll of the SEC Spring 2022.

Cross, an honorable mention All-America and first-team All-SEC selection, was the most consistent force on the Tennessee roster in his final season as a Vol. Cross finished the 2021-22 season with an average of 69.33, the best single-season shot average in program history.

Additionally, Cross’s 22 round par or better this season was the second in program history.

Cross concluded the regular season with his first career collegiate individual title at the Lewis Chitengwa Memorial in Charlottesville, Va., and followed it with a tied fifth place finish in the stroke play portion of the SEC Championships. He’s been Tennessee’s top finisher in his last six tournaments. Overall for the season, Cross recorded eight top-20 finishes, including five top-10 finishes.

Off the course, Cross was named to the SEC Community Service Team for the third straight year.

Wolcott ended his career at Tennessee having played 131 total rounds in the Orange and White – sixth in program history. He also finished his college career with a career average of 72.37, also sixth in program history.

The Tennessee native also finished third in program history in career rounds of par-or-better with 64 and left Knoxville with two of the best nine single-season hitting averages in program history.
