Director of Golf Kevin Smeltz’s student Ben Schlottman will be named to the All-SEC 1st Team. Schlottman is the first freshman in Auburn University’s history to receive these honors. According to a release from Auburn University, “it is the first time Auburn has had two All-SEC first-team selections in the same season since 2002. Schlottman’s team-low 69.67 stroke average is the third-best overall in the SEC this season and tops of all freshmen. It currently ranks as the lowest single season stroke average in school history. In 18 rounds, he has 16 rounds at par or better, 14 sub-par and eight in the 60s. The Advance, N.C., native has four top-five finishes this year with two runner-up finishes at the Schenkel Invitational and the SEC Championship, the best finish by a freshman in Auburn history. He is Auburn’s fourth SEC Freshman of the Year following Hiroshi Matsuo (1988), Jimmy Green (1989) and Shane Supple (1990).”
