NORMAN, Okla. -- The men's Division I Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars for 2010-11 were announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) on July 20. A total of 138 players were named to the team, including six Ivy League student-athletes.

Columbia and Harvard led the way for the Ivies with two honorees each. Recent graduate Clark Granum and rising senior Brendan Doyle earned the honor for the Lions, while Tony Grillo and Mark Pollak represent the Crimson as 2011 All-America Scholars. Granum, who earned the honor for the second consecutive season, is one of just seven players to finish his collegiate career with four All-Ivy honors after being named to the second team in 2011. Doyle earned first team All-Ivy honors in 2011 after a third place showing at the Ivy League Championship. Pollak, a rising senior, earned second team All-Ivy honors in 2011, while his classmate Grillo earned All-Ivy second team honors as a sophomore.

Rounding out the Ivy contingent on the All-American Scholar team are a pair of 2011 All-Ivy first team honorees in Penn's Scotty Williams and Yale's Tom McCarthy. Williams, a rising senior, tied for fourth en route to his third All-Ivy honor in as many seasons. McCarthy finished as the 2011 runner-up, leading the Bulldogs to the 2011 Ivy League Championship and a trip to NCAA Regionals. The recent graduate earned All-Ivy accolades in his final three seasons with the Bulldogs.

To be eligible for the Division I Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar team, an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least two full years at the collegiate level, participate in 70-percent of his team's competitive rounds or compete in the NCAA Championships, have a stroke-average under 76.0 and maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.2.
