David Kocher, a senior on the Maryland men’s golf team, was voted to the Second Team All-Big Ten, the conference announced Tuesday. It’s the third time in four years he’s earned Big Ten Honors.
Kocher finished tied for fifth in the individual portion of the Big Ten Championship last week in Baltimore. For the third time in four years, Kocher was named to the All-Tournament Team. Over three rounds, he shot a two-over-par 212, with scores of 69, 68 and 75.
Earlier this season, he won his second individual title at the Tiger Invitational. Kocher’s career 71.8-stroke scoring average is the lowest in the Maryland record books, which date back to 1999. He’ll leave College Park with four of the six best seasonal scoring averages in program history.
In his first three seasons as a Terp, Kocher has earned both NCAA Regionals bids as an individual and PING All-Northeast Region Team honors. The NCAA Men’s Golf Championship selection show will air at 5:30 p.m. ET tonight on Golf Channel.
Junior Timothy Colanta also earned his second straight Big Ten Sportsmanship Award.
