Wallin and Moldovan Earn PING All-Region Honors


COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State sophomores Adam Wallin and Maxwell Moldovan have earned PING All-Midwest Region honors as announced by the Golf Coaches Association of American.

This is Moldovan’s second All-Region honor as he also earned the distinction last year as a freshman. He had a tremendous 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.

Wallin was nearly step for step with Moldovan this season. He had eight Top 20 finishes with a scoring average of 71.97 over 11 events and 32 rounds. He too claimed his first collegiate win this spring, winning the Colleton River Collegiate at 14-under par. Wallin had 10 rounds in the 60s and a total of 17 rounds at par or better. He was the low Buckeye finisher at this year’s NCAA Championship.

This is the first time since 2019 that Ohio State has had multiple All-Region honorees. Daniel Wetterich and Will Grimmer each earned the award that season.

The Buckeyes won the Southern Collegiate this spring and advanced to the NCAA Championship for the 47th time in program history. They finished under-par in six events and posted eight Top 6 finishes this spring.
