Hartsville, SC - From Coker College:

HARTSVILLE, SC - Coker College freshman golfer Jake Murphy is going to have to make room in his trophy case if his first year as a Cobra is any indication of his future.

The Hamilton, N.J. native added two more accolades to his growing list over the summer as he was named to the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) Division II All-Freshman Team and he was selected as a PING All-Region golfer.

Earlier this spring Murphy was named the Conference Carolinas Freshman of the Year and was a Second Team All-Conference selection. Murphy finished in the Top 10 in four of the eight tournaments he played in this season, with a scoring average of 73.41.
