TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) –
Florida State senior Brooks Koepka has been named an All-American for the third time in his career as he earned All-American Second Team honors as selected by GolfWeek shortly after the conclusion of the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championship. He also earned All-America Third Team honors as named the Golf Coaches’ Association of America and earned All-American Honorable Mention Honors from GolfWeek as a sophomore in 2010.
Koepka also earned regional All-American honors in both 2011 (All-Southeast Region) and in 2012 (All- Southwest Region) as he concluded his career as one of the most decorated Seminoles in school history.
The 2010 and 2012 ACC Golfer of the Year, Koepka set school records for lowest career stroke average (71.85) and lowest single season stroke average (71.09) during his senior season of 2012 in leading the Seminoles to a ninth place finish at the NCAA National Championship Finals. The Seminoles finished the season ranked No. 16 by GolfStat and No. 18 by Golfweek.
Koepka is one of only six golfers who earned ACC Golfer of the Year honors multiple times during his career and is one of only three golfers in ACC history to earn ACC Golfer of the Year and ACC Rookie of the Year honors during his career.
“Brooks obviously had an outstanding season,” said head coach Trey Jones. “Team captain, ACC Player of the Year and All American puts an exclamation point on his career. He set high goals for himself and the team this season and led by example. Players like Brooks do not come along that often and I know he will continue to improve and progress as a professional.”
