June 4, 2010

T.J. Vogel, who was USC's top finisher at the recently completed NCAA Championships and finished the season with seven consecutive top 25 finishes, was selected to the five-player Golf Coaches Association of America All-Freshman team, the organization announced on Friday (June 4).

Vogel led USC in stroke average this season at 72.12. The 2010 Pac-10 Co-Freshman of the Year and an All-Pac-10 first teamer, he had nine top 27 finishes on the season and finished outside the top 33 only once this season.

He finished alone in second at the USC Collegiate, where he carded a 9-under 204 (70-63-71). His second-round score was two off the tournament record and USC's lowest of the season. He followed it with a tie for second at the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters, where he finished 4-over 220 (71-72-77). His other top 10 finish was a tie for eighth at the Stanford Intercollegiate, where he carded a 2-under 208 (74-65-69).

At the Pac-10 Championships, he tied for 16th, at the NCAA Regional he tied for 21st, and he tied for 25th at the NCAA Championships.

Washington's Chris Williams was named GCAA Freshman of the Year while Vogel, Texas' Cody Gribble, Texas A&M's Cameron Peck and UCLA's Pontus Widegren rounded out the five-man All-Freshman team.

Earlier in the week, the GCAA announced its PING All-Region teams. USC was represented on the All-West Region team by Vogel, sophomore Steve Lim and freshman Martin Trainer.

Additionally, the Pac-10 recently announced its All-Academic teams. Trojan junior Bo DeHuff earned honorable mention honors, as did USC women's golfers Stefanie Endstrasser and Jennifer Song.
