Seton Hall University junior Lloyd Jefferson Go of Guadalupe Cebu City, Philippines was named BIG EAST Men’s Golf Player of the Year on Friday, May 13.

Go became only the third Seton Hall golfer to win the individual BIG EAST Championship two weeks ago with a 6-under-par, 70-65-75-210, finishing three strokes head of Georgetown’s Sam Madison.

His historic tournament was fueled by a record-breaking second round. The junior fired a Callawassie Island course-record, 7-under-par, 65, that began on Monday and ended on Tuesday after lightning suspended play. Additionally, Go’s 7-under-par, 65, is the lowest single-round ever shot for a Seton Hall golfer at the BIG EAST Championship, and the second-lowest for a golfer from any school in the history of the conference tournament.

Next week, Go will be the first men’s golfer at Seton Hall to play in the NCAA Regionals since the team won the BIG EAST title and advanced to the national event in 2001. Go, an individual at the Kohler (Wis.) Regional, will begin play on Monday.

In 2014, Go was fifth in the NJSGA Amateur Championship at Knickerbocker followed by Seton Hall teammate Ryan Snouffer in sixth.

Prior to the BIG EAST Championship, Go became the first three-time All-BIG EAST performer in Seton Hall history. The junior shaved more than two full strokes off his scoring average from a year ago and led the BIG EAST Conference with a 71.50 average. Go tallied nine top-10 finishes in just 11 tournaments this year and shot a team-best 12 sub-par rounds. He has recorded five top-5 finishes and had four sub-par tournaments.

Earlier this spring, Go set a new Seton Hall record-low score for a three-round, par-72 tournament with a 9-under-par, 66-69-72-207 at the Loyola Invitational. His 9-under is the second-most strokes under par in Pirate history. Last fall, he fired an impressive 6-under-par, 70-69-71-210, at the Hartford Hawks Invitational.
