Three of the Flames' starting five golfers at the NCAA Men's Golf National Championship have been honored for their season-long efforts by being selected to the 2019 PING All-Region team.

Liberty's Ervin Chang, Gabe Lench and Kieran Vincent were each named to the PING All-Region East team, joining a total of 26 players who were named to the East team. In total, 150 student-athletes were named to the six PING All-Region teams.

 This is the second time in program history Liberty has placed three players on the PING All-Region team during the same season. Mathieu Fenasse, Niklas Lindstrom and Chase Marinell each were named to the PING All-Region East team in 2014.

Chang finished his junior season with a 71.71 stroke average, which ranks fourth-best in program history.

Chang was named to the ASUN Men's Golf All-Conference first team and he was selected the ASUN Men's Golf Scholar-Athlete of the Year. He led the team with eight top-10 finishes and played 19-of-35 rounds at par or better (54.3 percent) this season.
