Junior Jake Brown was one of the 25 golfers in the Midwest region named to the PING All-Midwest Regional Team by the Golf Coaches Association of America on Tuesday.

The players are awarded places on these teams for showing outstanding play during the season. Brown was selected after finishing the year with four top-10 finishes and a postseason ending at an NCAA Tournament Regional. He finished tied for fourth at one-under par at the Bryan Regional from May 14-16. 

He will start next season with a 73.72 career scoring average, which is sixth in IU history.

Brown finished the season with a 72.50 scoring average and four top-15 finishes out of six spring tournaments.

He is the first IU golfer to be named to the All-Midwest Regional team since 2013, and is the 10th different player since 2004.
