Newberry College men’s golfer Daniel Stanley put the wraps on a stellar collegiate career Friday, as he earned PING Division II Second Team All-American honors from the Golf Coaches Association of America. This marks Stanley’s second career All-America honor, as he was a third team All-American in 2010.
Stanley earned all-Southeast Region honors from the GCAA earlier this week, marking his third all-region honor. The Inman, S.C., native was the South Atlantic Conference champion in 2010 and 2011 and earned all-SAC honors in all four seasons.
Stanley was Newberry College’s first-ever golf All-American with his third team honor in 2010, and now becomes the Wolves’ first two-time All-American. Stanley finished his senior season with 25 rounds, a 72.4 stroke average and 15 rounds at or below par. He ranks second in Newberry history with 100 career rounds and a school-record 72.8 career stroke average.
During Stanley’s 100 career rounds, he played in the 2008 and 2011 NCAA Division II National Tournaments, with the Wolves earning a program- and conference-best quarterfinal finish in 2011. The Wolves qualified for the NCAA Division II Super Regional Tournament in all four seasons and earned three SAC Tournament championships. Newberry won 10 tournament titles during Stanley’s time in the scarlet and gray.
