COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State is represented on the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) All-Midwest Region Team for the ninth consecutive season with multiple recipients for the fifth time as Will Grimmer and Daniel Wetterich earned the all-region accolade. It marks the second consecutive award for Grimmer after doing so last season as freshman.
Second-year head coach Jay Moseley has guided his charges to 10 all-region recognitions, including a pair in both seasons as a Buckeye. In addition to this year’s honorees and Tee-k Kelly in ’17, Moseley also mentored six All-Southeast selections in six years running the Kennesaw State program.
Grimmer and Wetterich, both sophomores hailing from Cincinnati, played in all 33 rounds for the Buckeyes and ranked ‘1-2’ on the squad for season scoring average. One of the two paced Ohio State in 10 of 11 tournaments. Grimmer recorded the lowest OSU score in each of the first three tournaments of the season while Wettertich strung together three straight top tallies during the Spring slate.
Overall, Grimmer was the best Buckeye in six events with Wetterich earning that distinctions four times.
Ohio State notched its best finish at the Big Ten Championships since 2004, paced by the top Buckeye individual finish since ’04 as well. Grimmer’s runner-up performance combined with Top-20’s for Caleb Ramirez and Wetterich pushed Ohio State to a third-place finish.
The conference office also recognized Grimmer as the 100th All-Big Ten performer in school history while Wetterich was the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award recipient.
