Oliver Goss has been chosen as a Golfweek Third Team All-American.
"Each award I get is very prestigious and special to me," Goss said. "I knew All-American was a goal of mine coming into this season. Coach was saying he had never heard of it being done before, a player starting their season in December and winning the award. But it was a goal of mine and now I've done it."
Goss joins eight other Southeastern Conference golfers on the list. Golfweek's All-America teams are determined by players' order in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings.
The freshman now has racked up four post-season honors, including All-SEC First Team, All-SEC Freshman Team, and PING All-Region Team. The native of Perth, Australia recently attempted to qualify for the U.S. Open, missing out by six strokes.
Goss is the first Tennessee All-American since Robin Wingardh was named a 2011 Honorable Mention.
