Brian Goldsworthy '85

Men’s golf

Winning in a sudden-death playoff, Goldsworthy captured the individual NCAA Div. III men’s golf championship in 1985, the school’s first men’s national title. His performance helped the Dutch golfers finish fifth in the team standings, their highest finish. With Goldsworthy’s help, Central placed tenth at the national championships in 1982, sixth in 1983 and 1984.

Goldsworthy holds the school’s best 72-hole score at an NCAA tournament where he shot rounds of 70-70-77-80-297 at Monroe Golf Course in Pittsford, New York in 1985. He also is tied for Central’s best 18-hole score at an NCAA tournament shooting a 70 twice.

A member of four Iowa Conference championship teams, Goldsworthy was also the league MVP in 1985.

He was a CoSIDA Academic All-America pick in 1985 and a two-time member of the All-America Scholars golf team.

After receiving his M.B.A. degree from the University of Tulsa, Goldsworthy became director of strategic business analysis for Target Base Marketing in Irving, Texas.
