Former Delaware Menís Golf Standout Justin Martinson Wins NGA Max Motion Physical Therapy All-American Classic
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- Former University of Delaware men’s golf standout Justin Martinson posted a six shot victory in the Max Motion Physical Therapy All-American Classic earlier this month, earning the victory at Gates Four Country Club.
Martinson, a native of Avondale, Pa., fired a 10 under par 68-67-71-68-274 from July 10-13 at the tournament, which is a stop on the National Golf Association (NGA) Pro Golf Tour. He then followed up that performance by tying for third place at the NGA Seven Lakes Classic in West End, N.C. last Wednesday through Friday, carding a five under par 69-69-73-211.
Martinson, a 2011 UD graduate, is one of the top players in Blue Hen history, as his 73.53 career average round is the lowest by any Delaware golfer. He also has recorded the two lowest rounds in UD history, as well as the two lowest two-round totals.
Martinson won the 2010 CAA Championship, and went on to tie for 13th place at the NCAA Regionals in Alpharetta, Ga. He was a second team all-conference pick that year, before earning first team honors as a senior in 2010-11. Martinson’s eight rounds in the 60’s in 2009-10 are the most in a UD single season, while his 12 rounds in the 60’s from 2008-11 are also a Blue Hen career mark.
Additionally Martinson won the Delaware State Golf Association’s Open championship in 2009 and 2011, and also captured the 2010 DSGA Amateur.
