A Winning Tradition

  • Two Division III PING All-Region Team
  • Six All-NWC Athletes 

NORMAN --- The Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) has announced the men's golf Division III PING All-Region honorees, as Mason Koch was one of two Northwest Conference athletes to garner the award.

The GCAA announced a total of 98 players across all six regions – Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, South, Great Lakes, Central, and West – earned honors for 2019.

Koch, a junior from Auburn, Washington, becomes the first Bruin to earn the Div. III PING All-Region honor for the second time in his career. Last year, he joined Alex Plusquellec as the first golfers to grab a spot on the list. He recently helped the Bruins achieve their highest finish in the NWC standings at third and was named All-NWC first-team for the second straight season.

He finished his junior season with a 72.95 scoring average and eight top-10 finishes on the year. He cracked the top-5 six times and earned medalist honors at the NWC Spring Classic when he shot a 7-over-par 75-72=147.
