NORMAN, Okla. - The Purdue men's golf team has been recognized as one of just 125 squads across all of college golf to earn GCAA All-Academic Team honors presented by Farmers Insurance.

Each GCAA All-Academic Team squad must post a team grade-point average of 3.0 or above, with grades submitted for each player on its official squad list. Five Boilermakers - Tyler Duncan, Enzo Perez, Edward Peters, Henry Plager and Adam Schenk - collected Academic All-Big Ten accolades during the spring.

Duncan earned further recognition from the GCAA when he was tabbed as a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar. The Columbus, Ind., native was one of just 146 Division I men's golfers to earn the distinction in 2012.

To be eligible for Division I honors, a player must post a stroke average under 76.0 and a GPA of 3.2 or higher. The student-athlete must also be of high moral character and in good standing at his respective institution.

The second-team All-Big Ten pick played in all 12 of the Boilermakers' tournaments this season, leading the team with a 72.58 stroke average. He posted six top-10 finishes, and counted 32.5 of his 36 rounds to Purdue's team score on the year.
