A trio of Utah State golfers were tabbed Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars, it was recently announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America.
Tanner Jenson and Eli Rogers, along with the recently graduated Seokwon Jeon, were among 212 Division I golfers to earn All-America Scholar accolades from Cleveland Golf/Srixon.
Including Jeon, Jenson and Rogers, a total of eight golfers from the Mountain West were honored. Additionally, Utah State was the lone Beehive State school to garner All-America Scholar honors.
During the 2015-16 season, Jeon played 29 rounds and captured three tournament titles, which proved to be the second-most in school history. His 12-under 201 (66-70-75) at the Ogio Utah Invitational is the lowest 54-hole score by an Aggie since Jay Don Blake carded a school-best 18-under 195 (67-65-63) at the Utah State-hosted Ev Thorpe Classic in the fall of 1979. The native of Salt Lake City, Utah, capped his collegiate career by tying for 30th at the Mountain West Championships with a 3-over 219 (72-69-78).
Like Jeon, Jenson played 29 rounds for the Aggies during the season and recorded one top-five finish as he placed third at the Ogio Utah Invitational with a career-low 9-under 204 (68-66-70). At the Mountain West Championships, Jenson tied for 43rd with a 9-over 225 (75-77-73). The native of Parker, Colorado, recently qualified for the 2016 U.S. Amateur Championship.
Rogers, a native of Hamilton, Montana, played 26 rounds this past season and was the top placer for Utah State at the Mountain West Championships with a 2-over 218 (73-73-72) to tie for 28th. His best finish of the season came at the UC Irvine Anteater Invitational, where he tied for 14th with an 11-over 227 (75-77-75).
Jenson and Rogers will both be entering their senior seasons at Utah State.
Jeon, Jenson and Rogers all garnered academic all-Mountain West accolades, while Jenson and Rogers were also tabbed MW Scholar-Athletes.
