Senior Austin Graham was a member of the men’s golf squad in a time with a lot of change.
When he joined the squad, UC Davis was a Division II school on its way to Division I. Despite the transition, Graham continued to produce at a high level.
Graham was named to the Big West Conference Second Team in his freshman season, and he hasn’t looked back.
He was named to the Big West First Team each of the next three years, and was the team leader as the only senior this season.
During his final campaign as an Aggie, Graham led the team with 21 rounds under-par and posted a season average of one-over. He finished in the top-five in two tournaments, and posted top-10 finishes five times.
Graham was also a member of two Big West Conference Championship-winning teams – in 2009 and 2011. He also took the Big West Individual Championship in both of those seasons.
Despite missing the Big West Tournament in 2010, Graham made an appearance in the NCAA West Regional as an individual – finishing 40th.
Graham also holds the UC Davis record for lowest round, setting the mark when he shot a 63 during his sophomore year.
With the accomplishments in his illustrious career, Graham will surely be missed by the UC Davis men’s golf team for years to come.
