Goss, Lamb Earn All-American Honors From GCAA
Goss Named PING All-American

June 20, 2013

NORMAN, Okla. - The first, second, third and honorable mention PING All-America Teams were announced by the GCAA on Thursday. The list included two members from the Tennessee men's golf team.

Freshman Oliver Goss made the GCAA's ten-man PING All-American third team, while senior Rick Lamb was one of 27 individuals selected for the PING honorable mention team.

Goss finished his first season as a Tennessee Volunteer with his first collegiate victory (General Hackler), four top-5 finishes, and a team best stroke average of 71.95. After playing just half of the season, Goss still managed to earn five postseason honors: PING All-American third team, Golfweek All-American third team, All-SEC first team, All-SEC freshman team, and PING All-Region team.

Goss is the seventh Vol to earn third-team GCAA All-American honors and the third since 2005.

Lamb finished his senior season with a runner-up finish at the NCAA Championship, back-to-back individual championships (Gifford Collegiate, SeaBest Invitational), and a team high of 15 rounds of par or better.
