University of Colorado junior Jeremy Paul has been named to the PING All-West Region Golf Team, the Golf Coaches Association of America announced Monday.
Paul had a tremendous junior season in setting numerous records, most notably season marks for overall-stroke average (70.66), rounds in the 60s (18) and subpar rounds (21). He bettered the average mark by nearly a stroke, shattering the 71.46 mark set by Kane Webber in 2003-04. His marks for the fall (70.65) and the spring (70.67) were school bests as well, as was a streak of seven straight rounds in the 60s. He is currently fourth in the Pac-12 in stroke average and 16th in the nation.
Paul also set the school standard for the most consecutive rounds that counted toward the team score (54), and became the sixth Buffalo to lead the team in stroke average for three seasons, the first since Knut Ekjord did from 1995-97. He also joined Dale Douglass, Hale Irwin, Steve Jones and John Lindberg in doing so, and only Jones (1978-81) and Ekjord (1995-97, 1999) have done it four times.
Paul is the first Buffalo to earn All-Region honors since 2009.
