Posted on July 7th, 2021 by

NORMAN, Okla. – The Division III PING All-America Teams were announced Wednesday by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) and Gustavus junior Jacob Pedersen (Minnetonka) has been named to the nine-member First Team. Pedersen earns the Gustavus men’s golf program’s 47th All-America honor and first since Alex Kolquist and Tyler McMorrow during the 2012-13 season.

Pedersen garners the award following an impressive eighth place finish at the NCAA Championships where he shot a 74-75-71-71-291 (+8), which was just six strokes behind the winner. Pedersen boasted a solid spring season leading the Gusties with a 72.8 stroke average with four top-five finishes, including one medalist honor in five events. Additionally, Pedersen earned All-Region and All-Conference honors for the third consecutive year after placing fifth at the MIAC Championships.
