    2021 Golfweek All-America Teams

    Following one of the best individual seasons in program history, Liberty’s Kieran Vincent has taken home All-America honors.

    Today, Vincent was named to the 2021 Golfweek All-America third team, becoming the second player in program history to be named to a Golfweek All-America listing.

    Robert Karlsson, who will be inducted into the Liberty Athletics Hall of Fame in September, was named to the Golfweek All-America third team in 2012.

    Vincent is one of five players in Liberty golf program history to be named an All-American, joining Karlsson (2012 GCAA/PING third team and Golfweek third team), Ervin Chang (2019 GCAA/PING honorable mention), Gabe Lench (2019 GCAA/PING honorable mention) and Jonathan Yaun (2020 GCAA/PING honorable mention).

    This is the second All-America honor in Vincent’s career. He was also named to the 2020 GCAA/PING All-America honorable mention team.

    Vincent finished the 2020-21 season with a 70.48 stroke average, setting a new school record (previous record: Jonathan Yaun – 70.78 set in 2019-20).

    Vincent was ranked as high as No. 6 in the Golfstat individual national rankings (April 21 rankings), the highest individual ranking in program history. He is the program’s first-ever player to be named to the Fred Haskins Award watch list (top collegiate golfer in the country).

    The native of Harare, Zimbabwe 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).

    Vincent currently ranks first in school history with a 71.81 career stroke average, which includes 20 top-10 finishes and 62 career rounds at par or better.

    This is one of many honors for Vincent this season: 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 (annual award given to Liberty’s top student-athlete).
