Netzel and Weatherhead Earn All-Region Golf Honors

May 27, 2017

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State men’s golfers Charlie Netzel and Sam Weatherhead have been named Division I PING All-Midwest Region, as announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) on Saturday.

Complete All-Region Team

This is the second-straight season that the Spartans have had two players earn All-Region. Last season, Josh Heinze and Mitch Rutledge earned the honor last season.

Weatherhead, a native of Grand Rapids, Michigan, has endured an injury-shortened season, but despite the setbacks was ranked No. 31 by Golfstat. The senior had a season-low 66 en route to a third-place finish at the Bearcat Invitational. Weatherhead’s best result of the season was a second-place finish at the Gopher Invitational in September. The senior finished tied for fifth at the Quail Valley Intercollegiate with a season low 208, including a pair of sub-70 rounds.

Netzel, a native of Western Springs, Illinois, had a breakout senior campaign. The senior had one tournament victory, capturing the Colleton River Collegiate in March. He had a career-low 205 at the prestigious Alister MacKenzie Invitational. He ended the season strong with back-to-back top 10 finishes to end the regular season. Netzel averaged a 72.89, which was the lowest of any Spartan competing in more than six events, and the sixth-lowest in MSU history.

Both Netzel and Weatherhead both garnered All-Big Ten honors this season.

Michigan State advanced to the NCAA Tournament for consecutive seasons for the first time since the 2008-09 seasons.
