Charlotte, N.C. – Presbyterian College men’s golfers Brody Boston (Adel, IA) and Charlie Tate (Greensboro, NC) were honored by the Big South following the conclusion of match play at the 2019 Big South Conference Men’s Golf Championship on Thursday. Boston, a business administration major, was named to the Big South All-Academic Team, while Tate was named to the Big South’s All-Freshman Team.

 

Boston maintained a 3.8 GPA and averaged 77.33 strokes through 15 rounds his senior season. His low round of 71 (-1) led PC during the third round of the Wexford Intercollegiate, and he was second on the team with a 56th place tie at the Golfweek Program Championship.

 

Tate averaged 75.48 strokes through 21 rounds this season and led the team in two consecutive tournaments to end the fall. He was named the Big South Freshman of the Week on October 25 after shooting a nine-over 219 (76, 70, 73) to tie for 13th at the Camden Collegiate Invitational. He is the first freshman since Davis Parker in 2013 to earn the honor for PC.
