UGA's Denham, Kisner Named All-America Scholars

ATHENS - David Denham and Kevin Kisner, who led the Georgia men's golf team to the 2005 national championship, have been chosen as Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars by the Golf Coaches Association of America.

Denham, the only senior in the Bulldogs' playing lineup last season, was named an All-America Scholar for the second straight year. He also won the team's Howell Hollis Award as the Bulldog with the highest grade point average and was named to the SEC's Academic Honor Roll. Denham, a native of Tifton, ranked third on the team with a scoring average of 72.4, including a team-best nine top-20 finishes. He was named Second-Team All-American by PING.

Kisner, a rising senior from Aiken, S.C., was named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll. Serving as the team captain, he was fifth on the squad in scoring average at 74.3, and he earned Honorable Mention All-America status from PING for the third straight season. Kisner is just the fifth three-time All-American in school history and has a chance this year to become the Bulldogs' first four-time All-American.

"We're certainly very proud of David and Kevin," Georgia coach Chris Haack said. "This award caps what was a memorable season for the two of them and for our entire team. They both work so hard in the classroom, and they are deserving of this honor."
