Alpharetta, GA – Austin Peay State University senior Dustin Korte has been named to the Division I Ping Southeast All-Region team as chosen by the Golf Coaches Association of America.
Korte was one of 26 players to earn Southeast All-Region honors, with a total of 155 Division I golfers earning such distinction in six districts.
A senior from Metropolis, IL, Korte will wrap up his superb college career today playing in the NCAA Golf Championship at Capital City Club Crabapple Course. In doing so he is the first Governor since 1987 (Craig Rudolph) to participate in the NCAA championship event.
Korte earned the NCAA berth by owning the Tempe Regional’s lowest score exclusive of the Top 5 qualifying teams. He shot a career-best 6-under 204, including regional-opening round of 64. That 64 total tied as APSU’s low round in school history.
