SWOSU senior golfer Kason Cook has been named to the NCAA Division II PING All-Central Region Team, which was announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) on Wednesday.

This is the first career All-Region honor for Cook and the first by a Bulldog since Stefan Idstam claimed the honor at the conclusion of the 2016-17 season. Cook had three top-10 finishes in six tournaments and finished the shortened season with a stroke average of 72.7 over 17 rounds of golf. The highlight of the season was finishing as the individual medalist at the Missouri Southern Invitational last September at Shangri-La Country Club.

“I am extremely proud of Kason and this is a wonderful accomplishment for him,” SWOSU Head Coach Brad Fleetwood said. “Although our season was cut short, he proved throughout the entire year that he is definitely one of the best players in the Central Region and this is a well-deserved honor!”

Cook becomes the fifth SWOSU Men’s Golfer to earn a spot on the PING All-Region team, with each one coming since 2013. He joins Wouter MyBurgh (2013), Stefan Idstam (2014-17), Manuel Arzuaga (2015) and Jake Duvall (2015-16) as All-Region selections for the Bulldogs.
