Western Carolina junior J.T. Poston has been named to the PING All-Region East Team, the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) announced Thursday.

 

 

 

A total of 157 players across six regions – Northeast, East, Southeast, Midwest, Central and West – earned all-region honors for 2014.

 

Poston earns his second All-East Region recognition in as many years, joining former Catamount standout Matt Cook, who was named to the All-Southeast Region honorary team in 2008.

 

The 2014 SoCon Men’s Golfer of the Year, Poston claimed this spring’s SoCon Men’s Golf Championship in Pinehurst, N.C., garnering All-SoCon plaudits and the league’s automatic bid in to the NCAA postseason. He finished tied for 38th individually at the 2014 NCAA Men’s Golf Raleigh Regional, matching his first-ever NCAA appearance from a season ago.

 

A product of Hickory, N.C., Poston recorded nine top-10 finishes, including placing in the top five eight times with four individual medalist honors in his 11 seasonal events. He recorded WCU's all-time best single-season scoring average at 70.27 and will enter his senior year atop the career stroke average chart at 71.97.

 

The three-year starter was listed on two national player of the year watch lists this season – the Ben Hogan and the Haskins Award – while also appearing on the Palmer Cup watch list this spring, capping the year with the PING All-East Region honor.
