Jackets Remain on Top of Golfweek Rankings

Oct. 18, 2006

ATLANTA – For the second straight year, the consistent success of Georgia Tech’s golf team over a long period of time has made the Yellow Jackets the top Division I team in America according to a seven-year composite of the Golfweek magazine collegiate rankings.

One year ago, Golfweek combined six years worth of data that make up the Golfweek/Sagarin Collegiate Rankings to see which schools would come out on top. On the men’s side, Georgia Tech was the top team. After adding the 2005-06 year to the mix, the Yellow Jackets remain No. 1.

Despite not bringing home a national championship, the Yellow Jackets have shown consistency that ranks them above all. Georgia Tech has come close in the last seven seasons – three runner-up finishes, a fourth and fifth.

Of all Division I teams, Georgia Tech has the fewest head-to-head losses in the last seven years while playing the third-toughest schedule. The Jackets have an overall record of 1,073-279-17 (.790 winning percentage).

Rounding out the top five is No. 2 Georgia (up one spot), No. 3 Clemson (down one spot), No. 4 Oklahoma State and No. 5 Florida.
