How can i get the player who spawned the mob. Is it would be correct to find a player by distance like this. it is wotking but is it correct?

public ILivingEntityData onInitialSpawn(IServerWorld worldIn, DifficultyInstance difficultyIn, SpawnReason reason, @Nullable ILivingEntityData spawnDataIn, @Nullable CompoundNBT dataTag) {
    float dist = 999999999;
    int pl = 0;
    if (reason == SpawnReason.COMMAND || reason == SpawnReason.SPAWN_EGG || reason == SpawnReason.SPAWNER || reason == SpawnReason.DISPENSER) {
        List<ServerPlayerEntity> players = worldIn.getWorld().getPlayers();
       for(int i = 0;i < players.size();i++)
           if ( dist > this.getDistance(players.get(i)))
               dist = this.getDistance(players.get(i));
           pl = i;
        this.setCustomName(new TranslationTextComponent(players.get(pl).getScoreboardName()));

    return super.onInitialSpawn(worldIn, difficultyIn, reason, spawnDataIn, dataTag);
