MSU's Oland Earns PING All America

Derek Oland closed out his MSU golf career as the most decorated player in program history.

He added one more honor Tuesday afternoon, gaining honorable mention on the PING All-America team as released by the Golf Coaches' Association of America.

The senior from McKinney claimed a pair of individual wins and finished amongst the Top 10 in seven tournaments this season, posting a stroke average of 72.41 which ranked 19th in NCAA Division II.

As a two-time Lone Star Conference individual champion, Oland set many program standards at Midwestern. He claimed ten career wins and carded 47 par-or-better rounds, including a staggering 20 rounds in the 60s.

His career finish percentage of 86.7 is another impressive mark for future Mustangs to aspire.

Oland became the first repeat winner of MSU's Marie Morgan Award, which is presented to the top male and female student-athlete each year, claiming the honor in 2014 and 2015.

He was named a first-team All-American as a junior on the way to winning an NCAA Division II Super Region individual title. Oland's breakout year culminated in earning a spot on the prestigious GCAA All-Nicklaus Team.

The two-time LSC Player of the Year also became the first MSU men's golfer to gain first-team All-Lone Star Conference accolades in each of his four seasons.

Oland was also a first-team PING All-South Central Region selection in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
