Tennessee's Chris Paisley, Robin Wingardh and Darren Renwick have been chosen for 2009 Southeastern Conference Men's Golf Awards, the league office announced Monday.

Paisley, a senior, was one of nine golfers named to the All-SEC first team, while sophomore Wingardh joined seven other competitors in gaining second team recognition. Renwick was one of eight selections to the Freshman All-SEC squad.

"It was terrific to see Chris and Robin named to SEC all-conference selections," UT head coach Jim Kelson said. "Chris has played exceptionally well this year and deserved to be named to the first team, and Robin is beginning to perform at a consistently high level.

"Finally, we were very excited to see Darren named to the Freshman All-SEC team. He has worked extremely hard and been a very coachable young man. He certainly was deserving of being named to this team."

The SEC's 12 head coaches vote for honors in conjunction with the league's championship weekend.

A Newcastle, England, native, Paisley was Golfweek's National Player of the Week for Feb. 9-13 after capturing medalist honors at the Arizona Invitational. He stands fourth in the SEC with a 72.23 stroke average and ranks 38th in the nation in the latest Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index Ratings.

Wingardh's 72.50 stroke average ties him for eighth in the SEC and supports his ranking of 58th nationally in the latest Golfweek/Sagarin ratings. The Morarp, Sweden, product hasn't finished outside the top 20 since early February, six tournaments ago, and claimed his first collegiate title at the Ping/Golfweek Preview Invitational back in September.

Renwick caught fire after the new year, turning in three top-20s in a four-tournament span. Included was a ninth-place showing at the Arizona Invitational for the Worthing, England, native, helping boost his season stroke average (74.19) to rank ninth among league freshmen and 34th overall in the SEC.

Arkansas head coach Brad McMakin was voted SEC Coach of the Year by his peers, while Florida's Billy Horschel won SEC Golfer of the Year honors. Alabama's Bud Cauley was named SEC Freshman of the Year and South Carolina's Mark Silvers III was tabbed SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
