SANTA MONICA, CALIF. - Seton Hall golfers Troy Spencer (High Point, N.C.) and Brandon Park (Weston, Fla.) were named to the Division I PING All-Northeast Region Golf Team as announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America.
A total of 155 players across six regions - Northeast, East, Southeast, Midwest, Central and West - earned all-region honors for 2012.
This is Park's third straight appearance on the All-Region Team and the second such recognition for Spencer.
Spencer closes out his collegiate career as one of the finest men's golfers in Seton Hall history. The Pirates' all-time leader with 117 rounds, he is tied for second having played in 45 tournaments. Spencer's 74.61 career stroke average is fourth-best in Seton Hall history and he also ranks among the top-5 in most sub-par rounds, top-10 finishes and top-5 finishes. His 73.36 career second round stroke average is the lowest in Pirates' history.
In 2011-12, Spencer led the Pirates in fall stroke average, and his 73.38 stroke average for the year also led the team. Recently named Seton Hall's Student Most Valuable Pirate, Spencer tallied five top-10 finishes this year including a spectacular 5-under-par, 69-69-73-211 to tie for third at the Turning Stone Tiger Intercollegiate.
Park, a junior, completed his third straight strong year as a Seton Hall Pirate. The two-time All-BIG EAST performer notched three top-5 finishes last year, including his first career tournament victory. Park tied for first at the Barnabas health Intercollegiate with a 69-75-144, but lost the tie-breaker. He returned the following weekend however, to win the Lehigh Invitational with the same score, an even-par, 75-69-144. Park also tied for third at the competitive Manor Intercollegiate with a 1-over-par, 70-72-75-217. His 74.00 stroke average for the 2011-12 academic year ranked second only to Spencer.
