Michael Kim leads Golfweek’s list of All-Americans for the 2012-13 season. Kim, a California sophomore who already has won the Jack Nicklaus Award for this season, is one of five Cal players to earn All-America honors, but the only Golden Bear on the first team.

Kim is joined by Texas freshman Brandon Stone, who announced this week that he has turned professional.

Alabama claims four All-Americans, including juniors Bobby Wyatt and Cory Whitsett and sophomore Justin Thomas on the first team.
