TUCSON, Ariz. University of Arizona men’s golfers Eric Oja and rising senior Alex McMahon were among a select of college golfers honored on Wednesday as Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars in a release by the Golf Coaches Association of America for the 2013-14 season.

To be eligible for Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar status, an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in at least 50 percent of his team’s competitive rounds, have a stroke average under 76.00 in Division I and maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.2. Recipients must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at their colleges or universities.

Oja finished up his college career leading UA with a 71.37 scoring average in 2013-14, posting a team-high 23 rounds at par or better. He recorded eight top-10 finishes as a senior, with his best showing coming in third at the John A. Burns Intercollegiate in February.

The Sandviken, Sweden, native garnered first-team Pac-12 All-Academic honors following both his sophomore and junior seasons at UA.

McMahon wrapped up his junior year with his most productive season as a Wildcat. The Oro Valley, native carded a career best 73.03 scoring average, good for second on the team, with 18 rounds at par or better behind only Oja. His best finish came in at second at the ASU Thunderbird Invitational in March.

He was honored on the Pac-12 All-Academic first team for the second-consecutive year, and also earned honorable mention recognition following his junior season.
