Long's 66-66-69 helped lead the Tigers to the Turning Stone Tiger Intercollegiate Sept. 2-3 in Verona, N.Y. He won the individual title by 10 strokes with a 54-hole total of 201 crushed the previous tournament record of 208.

In the NCAA Regionals in May, Long fired a school-record-tying 10-under-par 62 to capture medalist honors in Ocala, Fla. He shot a 6-over 78 in June's NCAA Finals but is still building on the momentum of his outstanding individual season.

A Dixon, Mo., native, Long won two events as a junior, the Michigan Wolverine Intercollegiate and the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate, and a school record four tournaments as a sophomore. His six career victories are also a school record.
