AUGUSTA, Ga. – Augusta State’s Henrik Norlander has been named to the PING All-Southeast Region team, according to a recent announcement from the Golf Coaches Association of America. With his selection, Norlander is now a candidate for All-America honors.
A sophomore from Danderyd, Sweden, Norlander enjoyed one of the top seasons in school history during the Jaguars’ 2008-09 campaign.
Norlander helped lead ASU to two tournament titles and to an NCAA Southeast Regional appearance in Sorrento, Fla. In 11 events over 31 rounds, Norlander registered a 71.55 scoring average, the fourth-lowest in school history behind only two-time All-Americans Jamie Elson and Major Manning.
He recorded a team-high 18 rounds of par or better, including a team-best eight rounds in the 60’s. He paced the squad in countable-round percentage (.857) (24-of-28) and in top-10 finishes (four) and top-20 finishes (eight).
Norlander was selected to play in the Palmer Cup on April 23. He posted a 2-2-0 record and helped lead Europe to a 13-11 victory over the United States on June 5 at Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, Colo.
