COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State’s Maxwell Moldovan had one of the best seasons in recent history for a Buckeye and he was rewarded on Tuesday by being named a PING All-American.
Moldovan earned third team honors and is the first Buckeye to earn first, second or third team All-America honors since Ryan Armour was named to the third team in 1998. In all, Moldovan is the 41st Ohio State All-American.
The Uniontown, Ohio native was brilliant this year, averaging 71.03 over 36 rounds and 12 events. Since 1980, that is the lowest single-season scoring average in program history, besting his average of 71.50 from last season. Moldovan claimed his first three collegiate victories this spring, winning the NEXUS Collegiate, the Southern Invitational and the Robert Kepler Intercollegiate. He had 14 rounds in the 60s and 23 rounds at par or better with eight Top 20 finishes.
This season, he also earned his second consecutive PING All-Region honor and was a unanimous first team All-Big Ten honoree.
Moldovan rolled the collegiate season success right into US Open qualifying as he shot rounds of 66-69 at Springfield Country Club on the “Longest Day in Golf” to earn his spot in the 2022 US Open.
