Schniederjans Named ACC Golfer of the Month
Tech senior shares monthly honor with UNC's Register
Schniederjans, a senior from Powder Springs, Ga., won his sixth collegiate tournament in the last 12 months while helping Georgia Tech to a second-place finish at the Carpet Capital Collegiate. He then closed with rounds of 67-67 and finished third individually to help the Yellow Jackets topple a strong field in the DICK's Sporting Goods Challenge.
For the month, Schniederjans posted a stroke average of 68.67 with five of six rounds at or below par. It is the third time Schniederjans has won the monthly honor, having done so last fall and again last spring.
Register, a freshman from Burlington, N.C., hit the ground rolling for the Tar Heels with three top-20 finishes in his first three collegiate tournaments, including a record-breaking win at the Primland Collegiate Invitational. After two under-par tournaments to start his career, Register recorded a 17-under 199 to win at Primland, setting new program records for lowest 54-hole tournament overall score and in relation to par.
His performance was the 10th in league history under 200 in a 54-hole tournament, and he is just the eighth ACC student-athlete to break the mark. For the month, he had a scoring average of 69.33.
