URI’s Gillis, Richards Named to PING All-Northeast Team

University of Rhode Island stars Brandon Gillis and Bryson Richards have been named to the Division I PING Northeast All-Region team. 

The announcement was made by the Golf Coaches Association of America. 

“To say I am proud of Brandon and Bryson is easy, but to say that this is Rhody Golf and they stood on the shoulders of great young men who built this in the last 10 years is paramount. Two selections from the same team in this list says it all,” said Head Coach Gregg Burke.
