Senior Otto Black was named to the PING All-Midwest Region Team, the Golf Coaches Association of America recently announced.

Black is earning all-region accolades for the first time, and his appearance marks the third time in the last four years UT has been represented on the team. Chris Selfridge also was selected to the all-region squad following the 2012-13 and 2014-15 seasons.



Black had a stellar senior campaign in which he was tabbed first-team All-Mid-American Conference for a second-straight year. He competed in a squad-best 13 tournaments and averaged a career-low 73.0 strokes per round, the fourth-best mark in the league.

The four-time all-conference selection finished in the top 10 in six events throughout the year, highlighted by a pair of runner-up finishes at the Notre Dame Kickoff Challenge and the Firestone Invitational. He also was named MAC Golfer of the Week on one occasion and shot par or better on a squad-best 14 occasions.

Black recently concluded his collegiate career with an at-large selection at the NCAA Kohler Regional.

The Pinckney, Mich., native was one of five individuals representing the Mid-American Conference on the All-Midwest Region Team, joined by Kent State’s Ian Holt and Chase Johnson, Miami’s Patrick Flavin and Northern Illinois’ Joo-Young Lee.
