Senior men’s golf star Collin Morikawa was named an All-American for the fourth time in his career Tuesday, making him the only Cal golfer to ever receive this honor four times.

This is also the third time Morikawa was named a Division I PING First-Team All-American, having been named a first-team All-American in each of his past three seasons after being selected for the third team his freshman year.

This honor came after Morikawa finished his final collegiate golf event at the NCAA Championships, where he finished tied for sixth. This is his 35th time placing in the top 10 at an event, extending his streak of top-20 finishes to 25.

In his junior year, Morikawa broke a 14-year-old NCAA single-season stroke average record with 68.68, and his career stroke average of 69.78 is the best in school history.

Despite closing out his collegiate career on Monday as the team failed to qualify for match play at the NCAA Championships, Morikawa will be returning to the golf course soon, competing at a sectional qualifying event for the U.S. Open on June 3.
