Humphrey named first-team All-American

May 29, 2018

Vanderbilt senior Theo Humphrey was named a first-team All-American selection in an announcement made by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) on Tuesday. Humphrey is the fifth Commodore to be named to a first team, joining teammate Patrick Martin (2016), Matthias Schwab (2016), Hunter Stewart (2015), and current PGA Tour member Brandt Snedeker (2003).

Humphrey is also the Commodores’ fourth first-team selection in the last four years under current head coach Scott Limbaugh, who in his six-year tenure with Vanderbilt, has coached a total of 13 All-Americans.

Earlier this year, Humphrey was also named the 2018 SEC Player of the Year and a First-Team All-SEC selection, as well as being named a Hogan Award Semifinalist. Humphrey played in all 12 events and won his first individual title at the Schenkel Invitational when he carded a 13-under par, 203. Humphrey finished tied for second at the East Lake Cup, third at the Mason Rudolph Championship, and tied for third at the Querencia Cabo Collegiate, while carding three other top 10 finishes (T-10, Nike Collegiate; T-8, SunTrust Gator Invitational; SEC Championship, T-7th). He also won SEC Player of the Week honors after his win at the Schenkel and added SEC Scholar Athlete of the Year to his resume for his work in the classroom.

Humphrey finished the season with a 70.26 stroke average, which places him fourth all-time on Vanderbilt’s single-season list, and for his career, the senior has a stroke average of 71.14 for 132 rounds, which places him third all-time in program history.
