AUBURN, Ala. – Three Auburn golfers received All-SEC honors as senior Michael Johnson was named to the first-team, Jacob Solomon earned all-freshman honors and senior Jake Mondy for community service.

Johnson has had a remarkable season being a Ben Hogan Award semifinalist, on the Haskins Award Watch List and was selected to the United States team for the Arnold Palmer Cup in the annual Ryder Cup-style competition vs. Europe June 24-26 at Formby Golf Club in Formby, England.

Johnson, who is currently ranked eighth in the country in the Golfstat Cup, has won a school record three tournaments this season as he currently holds the lowest stroke average in school history at 70.06.
