Five Jackets Make GCAA All-Region Golf Team

Norman Okla. – All five starters for the 11th-ranked Georgia Tech golf team – seniors Bartley Forrester, Connor Howe and Ross Steelman, junior Christo Lamprecht and freshman Hiroshi Tai – have named to the PING All-East Region team selected by the Golf Coaches Association of America. The GCAA announced the selections of the best collegiate players across six regions (top 25 players in each region) Saturday.

The five Tech players are the most of any team on the 25-player list in the East Region, including No. 2-ranked North Carolina, which placed four on the team. Only Vanderbilt (Southeast), Illinois (Midwest) and Arizona State (West) also placed five players in their regions.

Howe, Lamprecht and Steelman made the All-Atlantic Coast Conference team earlier this month. All five players are ranked among the top 100 players nationally in either the Golfstat rankings or the Golfweek/Sagarin Index, while Lamprecht, Steelman and Howe are listed among the top 40 in both rankings.

The quintet has been the core of a Yellow Jackets’ team that won the 2023 ACC Championship, defeating Wake Forest in the championship match and downing Duke in the semifinals after winning the 54-hole stroke-play portion of the championship by 16 shots. They also captured the NCAA Salem Regional in record fashion, posting a 53-under-par score to win the regional by eight strokes. Tech has finished as a runner-up in five other tournaments, including three this spring. The fivesome has combined for 20 individual top-10 finishes.

The Yellow Jackets are competing this weekend in the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championship at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz.
