Charles Corner Earns Spot on All-Conference Team

IRVING, Texas – For the second consecutive year, UTEP men's golf senior Charles Corner earned a spot on the Conference USA All-Conference Second Team list, the league announced on Wednesday. Corner finished his collegiate career with two conference second-team selections, two Golfer of the Week honors, a spot on the 2018 InTouch Credit Union All-Academic team as well as a 2017 Conference USA Championship.  

"It's been a great year," Corner said. "I'm very excited to get this award."

The Canada product paced the team as the Miners' top finisher in four of five spring tournaments. He most recently finished in a tie for 31st at the Conference USA Championship, where the team took eighth. Corner constructed a team-best 71.5 stroke average through 12 events with three top-five finishes. His second-place showing at the Price's Give 'Em Five Invitational lifted UTEP to a team crown. 
Corner helped the Miners finish the year with one tournament title and eight top-10 finishes, include three top-five finishes, in 12 tournaments this season.

Corner will wait to see if he will be selected to participate in a NCAA Regional tournament as an individual. The selection show takes place today on the Golf Channel.
