MESA, Ariz. – Mineral Area golfer Tyler Fieser received another prestigious honor on the eve of his second Division II national tournament.
The sophomore was named to the PING all-region team at the NJCAA Championship banquet on Monday. Only 30 individuals are selected for the award, split evenly among three regions.
Fieser teed off Tuesday at Longbow Golf Club in round one of the tournament, which continues through Friday.
He earned the opportunity by placing second in district competition two weeks ago and earning one of five available bids.
Fieser finished 57th with a total of 308 last year at the national level, scoring second best on his team as a freshman.
He was a three-time tournament medalist this season for Mineral Area, and was joined on the all-Region 16 team by teammates Ricardo Devoto and Dylan White.
