NORMAN, Okla. – Three NESCAC golfers were named to the Division III Ping All-America Teams by the Golf Coaches of America.

DIVISION III PING ALL-AMERICA TEAMS

Williams junior Sam Goldenring garnered a spot on the First Team and is the second Eph men's golfer (Will Sicks ’03) to earn All-America honors twice in his career. Goldenring's first All-America honor came in 2017.

Goldenring competed at the NCAA Championship as an individual and claimed medalist honors, leading a field of 216 golfers. The first Eph to win the NCAA Individual title, Goldenring posted nine straight pars to finish first by two shots with a final four-round score of 275 (-3).

Trinity senior tri-captain Will Rosenfield earned a spot on the Third Team after two years as an Honorable Mention selection. He was named the NESCAC Men's Golfer of the Year and was a semifinalist for the 2018-19 Division II/III Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year Award third the third time in his career.

Rosenfield was a GCAA Ping Northeast All-Region Team and earned All-NESCAC First Team honors as he helped Trinity win its second-straight and third overall NESCAC Championship this spring. Rosenfield repeated as the NESCAC medalist and led the Bantams to a program-best 10th place finish at the NCAA Championships at Keene Trace Golf Club in Nicholasville, Ky.

Rosenfield, a four-time, Ping Division III All-Northeast Region selection, is the second golfer to earn back-to-back NESCAC Golfer of the Year honors since 2000-01 and is the sixth Bantam to be honored as the NESCAC Golfer of the Year. Rosenfield was the medalist in five of nine tournaments this season, including the NESCAC Fall Qualifier (139-69-70) and the NESCAC Championship (103-35-69).

Middlebury senior Reid Buzby was named to the All-America Honorable Mention squad after leading the Panthers to first place at the NESCAC Fall Qualifier and the right to host the spring championship. The Panthers had a strong spring as they tied for first at the Tim Brown Invitational hosted by Skidmore and placing third at the Williams Spring Invitational.

Buzby earned his second GCAA All-Region honor after being named to the team in 2017. He is also a two-time All-NESCAC First Team selection (2015, 2019) and was a second-team honoree in 2016. Buzby's best finish of the fall came at the NEIGA Championship, where he took home medalist honors with a two-day total of 145. He tied for first the following weekend at Skidmore, shooting a 137, including a final round of 66.
