COLUMBIA – Missouri’s Jace Long was named a Ping Golf All-American by the Golf Coaches Association of America on Thursday. The Dixon, Mo., native is coming off a  season in which he won four events, including the 2011 NCAA Southeast Regional in Ocala, Fla.

A sophomore, Long advanced to NCAA Championship play with a school-record tying 10-under-par 62 in the final round of the NCAA Regional which helped him become the school’s first-ever NCAA Regional Champion. He became the first Tiger since Stan Utley (1983-84) to win multiple tournaments in the same season. The four wins by Long are both a single-season and career record at Missouri.

Long finished the year with a 71.8 stroke average, and he fired 12 rounds of 70 or better on the season.

Long is the first Missouri golfer to win All-America honors since Shawn Jasper in 2005.
