AUBURN, Ala. – Auburn senior Michael Johnson and freshman Jacob Solomon were named to the PING All-Southeast Region team, announced the Golf Coaches Association of America.

Johnson, who was a first-team All-SEC selection, 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 ranked sixth in the country in the Golfstat Cup, won a school record three tournaments this season as he broke the Auburn single-season stroke average record at 70.37.

The Dublin, Calif., native had four top-13 finishes, tying for 10th at the Carpet Capital, 11th at the Jerry Pate National, 12th at the Primland and 13th at the Seminole. Solomon tied for 18th at the SEC Championship.
