Schniederjans Named ACC Golfer of the Month
Georgia Tech golf freshman won Carpet Capital Collegiate in first start
Greensboro, N.C. - Georgia Tech’s Luke Schniederjans has been named the ACC Men’s Golfer of the Month for September, announced Wednesday by the conference office.
Schniederjans, the younger brother of three-time All-American Ollie Schniederjans, won the first collegiate tournament in which he played, holding off pursuers from Auburn, Virginia and North Florida during the final round to score a 1-stroke victory at the Carpet Capital Collegiate (11-under-par 205) in mid-September. He shot all three rounds under par (69-66-70) en route to the individual title.
The freshman from Powder Springs, Georgia, followed that with a tie for 13th at the Maui Jim Intercollegiate on a desert-style course (5-under-par 208). Schniederjans has broken 70 in four of his first six collegiate rounds, has a team-best 68.83 stroke average in six rounds and is ranked No. 19 nationally in the Golfweek/Sagarin Index.
Schniederjans and the 22nd-ranked Yellow Jackets return to action Oct. 21-23 when they host the 11th annual Golf Club of Georgia Collegiate in Alpharetta, Ga.
