Zimbabwe: Another Milestone for Golfer Vincent

Sports Reporter

ZIMBABWEAN golfer, Kieran Vincent, continues to make waves in the United States after he was named in the 2021 Golfweek All-America third team.

Vincent becomes the second Liberty University player in programme history to be named to a Golfweek All-America listing.

The former St George's pupil has been having a dream season.

He was nominated for The Fred Haskins Award watch list, ASUN All-Conference first team, ASUN Championship All-Tournament team, GCAA/PING All-Region and Rock Royer/Mac Rivera Award, the annual award, given to Liberty's top student athlete.

Vincent follows in the footsteps of Robert Karlsson, who was named to the Golfweek All-America third team, in 2012.

For his performances Karlson will be inducted into the Liberty Athletics Hall of Fame, in September.

It's a feat which Vincent may achieve if he continues with his fine form.

Vincent finished the season with a 70.48 stroke average, setting a new school record.

The previous record had been set by Jonathan Yaun with an average of 70.78 in 2019-20.

Vincent was ranked as high as number six, in the Golfstat individual national rankings, in April.

It is the highest individual ranking in programme history for a Liberty student.

He is the programme's first player to be named to the Fred Haskins Award watch list (top collegiate golfer in the country).

The golfer finished top 10, in seven out of nine events, during the spring season and he played 66.7 percent of his rounds, at par or better (18-of-27).
