Grand Rapids Community College golfer Tyler Hausserman was named to the NJCAA DII PING All-Region Team for the second year in a row.
Hausserman, a sophomore from Ionia, is the only Michigan athlete honored by the National Junior College Athletic Association’s Division II.
He was the top golfer on a team that finished 11th in the nation during the 2021 season, averaging 74.9 strokes per round.
“Tyler isn’t just one of the best community college golfers in the state, he’s among the best in the nation,” said Dave Selmon, interim athletic director. “We’re proud of our golfers, and all of our student-athletes who overcame unprecedented challenges and still shined this season.”
Hausserman’s season included the top score at the Jackson College Invitational, shooting a 69, and finishing in the top five of all seven events prior to the national tournament.
The Raiders dominated conference competition this season, winning every regular season tournament, with five golfers earning All-Conference honors and John Forton being named Coach of the Year.
Hausserman, Logan Templeton, Davis Courtright, Dominic Luciani and Arie Jackman posted the top five scores in the conference for the season and were named to the MCCAA’s All-Conference team.
Hausserman was the team leader the prior season as well, and was named the top golfer in the MCCAA and PING All-Region Team.
“He’s a very solid player who has a winner’s mentality,” Forton said. “He’s very focused, and I could always count on him to play well.”
