FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Razorback men’s golfers David Lingmerth and Jamie Marshall were named Division I PING All-Region Team members on Wednesday by the Golf Coaches Association of America. Two of 25 golfers in the central region, Lingmerth and Marshall joined an exclusive club of just 153 players across six regions.
"David and Jamie are very deserving of these regional honors," Arkansas head coach Brad McMakin said. "David had a tremendous year for us and Jamie was also very good, especially at the regional where he nearly forced a playoff for an individual spot at the NCAA Championships."
The honor for Lingmerth is his second making him the first Razorback men’s golfer to earn two all-region honors. He was also named to the all-region team as a junior and completed his Razorback career with a 72.62 stroke average, a mark that ranks second in Razorback history. Lingmerth’s 2009-10 season was one for the record books as he shot a total of 19 over par over 13 tournaments and 35 rounds. He took 2,507 strokes on the year and shot par or better six times while posting 10 top 10 finishes. His 71.63 stroke average for the year is the third best in Arkansas history and his 19 top 10 career finishes is second best in the Arkansas record books.
Marshall picked up his first career regional honor making him just the fifth Razorback to be recognized. Marshall was second on the Razorbacks in scoring average this season at a career best 72.37, an average that is the seventh best in Razorback history. He was Arkansas’ top finisher at the NCAA Atlanta Regional when he tied for 13th overall with a three-round score of 212, two-over par, which included a three under 67 on the second day of competition. The all-region honor for Marshall is also the first national award for the Castle Rock, Colo., native.
Lingmerth and Marshall along with teammates Dalton Owens and Ethan Tracy take to the links next at U.S. Open Sectional qualifiers on Monday, June 7.
