Men's Golf's Goodwin, Meissner Named Second Team All-Americans

NORMAN, Okla.- SMU men's golfers Noah Goodwin and Mac Meissner were each named Second Team All-Americans by the Golf Coaches Association of America. It is the second consecutive All-America honor for each Goodwin and Meissner.

Goodwin and Meissner bring the program to 22 All-America selections, and are the first SMU golfers to earn a spot on the First Team or Second Team since Bryson DeChambeau in 2015. The pair are the fifth and sixth two-time All-Americans in SMU men's golf history, joining DeChambeau (2014-15), Will Dodson (2004-05), Franklin Hatchett (2001-02) and Hank Kuehne (1996, 1998).

SMU is one of six schools to have two players named to one of the three All-America teams, joining Duke, Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma and Pepperdine. Last season, the duo became the first set of Mustang teammates to earn All-America recognition in the same season, with Meissner being named to the Third Team and Goodwin receiving Honorable Mention.

Goodwin averaged 70.60 strokes per round in 2019-20, which ranks third in SMU history in single-season stroke average. He won the Maridoe Intercollegiate with a 1-under 216, one of four top-10 finishes in five events this season. Nine of his 15 rounds were under-par, and six of those scorecards were in the 60s. Goodwin finished the season ranked 14th in the Golfstat Rankings on the way to the Second Team.

Meissner earned his Second-Team honors by breaking the school's single-season record with a 70.44 scoring average. He had four top-five finishes, including a victory at the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate at 8-under par, and a fourth-place finish at the Southern Highlands Intercollegiate, which earned him AAC Golfer of the Week honors. Meissner, who ranked 15th in the final Golfstat Rankings, signed 14 par-or-better scorecards in 16 rounds.

SMU won two events in the shortened 2019-20 season, and finished the year ranked No. 12 in the Golfstat rankings, the school's best finish since the organization began ranking teams in 1993-94.
