ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) – On the heels of a highly successful senior season, UCF's Greg Eason has been named a PING First-Team All-America performer by the Golf Coaches Association of America.
It's the second straight season Eason has brought home the honor. He was also an honorable mention All-America selection following his sophomore season.
"Greg Eason is one of the hardest working young men I have ever met," UCF head coach Bryce Wallor said. "This is the third time Greg has earned All-America honors and his second consecutive first-team selection. Greg Eason has left the UCF golf program as the most decorated player in the program's history."
The award caps a season with numerous decorations for Eason. Earlier this month he was named to the PING All-Southeast Region team. Eason was also named American Athletic Conference Player of the Year, as well as a first-team all-conference honoree. He has also earned exempt status on the PGA Tour Canada and will soon be embarking on his professional career.
Over the course of his UCF career, Eason brought home seven individual tournament titles, including perhaps the biggest win in UCF history. The Leicester City, England native won the 2013 NCAA Tempe Regional on May 18, marking the first individual regional champion for the program. Eason finished the 2013-14 season ranked No. 10 in the nation by Golfstat. His average score for the season was 70.47.
