Greensboro, N.C. – Gustavus Adolphus senior men’s golfer Tyler McMorrow (St. Cloud, Minn.) has been named to the 2014 Golf Coaches Association of America Division III PING All-Region Team as one of 16 honorees from the Central Region.
McMorrow was recently honored as a member of the All-Conference Team as a part of the 2014 Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Awards released on Tuesday afternoon. A staple of Head Coach Scott Moe’s lineup for four seasons, McMorrow earns the program’s Iron Man award after playing in all 92 rounds of his collegiate career. Totaling 6,915 strokes over the 42 events he participated in, the St. Cloud product finishes his Gustavus tenure with a stroke average of 75.2. A two-time All-Conference performer and a GCAA All-American in 2013 after finishing fifth overall at the NCAA Championships, Tyler McMorrow makes his first appearance on the All-Region Team this year.
“Tyler had a solid season for us,” said Scott Moe. “There are some fantastic players in our region, so to be named All-Region is a great accomplishment. Tyler’s win at the Bobby Krig solidified was a great way to finish the season and it solidified his status as one the top players in the country. He will surely go down as one of the best I have had the privilege to coach.”
McMorrow finished his senior year with a team-best stroke average of 75.5 (+4) after 23 rounds and 1,737 strokes. He posted a career-low score of four-under 66 in a dual victory against Minnesota State University, Mankato on Sept. 4, and registered three top ten finishes in tournament play. Like Coach Moe eluded to, the highlight of McMorrow’s season came on April 21-22 when he won the 87-player Bobby Krig Invitational with a three-round 221 (+9). Against players in the MIAC who played at least 19 rounds, McMorrow’s season average ranked fourth.
Of the 16 student-athletes awarded All-Region status within the Central Region, McMorrow is one of four players from the MIAC honored. He joins Alex Kapraun and Bennet Schroeder of St. Thomas, and Casey Vangsness of Saint John’s.
