ATLANTA — Georgia Tech golfer Ollie Schniederjans has been named the “Player of the Mid-Season” by Golf World magazine after the Yellow Jackets junior won two tournaments in the fall and earned top-five finishes in two others.

Schniederjans won the season-ending United States Collegiate Championship by four strokes with a 10-under par 206 for 54 holes, two shots shy of the tournament scoring record. The Powder Springs native and former Harrison High School standout also shared medalist honors at the season-opening Carpet Capital Collegiate with a 9-under-par score of 207.

In between, he finished third at the Tar Heel Intercollegiate (-3) and tied for fourth at the Brickyard Collegiate (-8). At the Brickyard, he finished one stroke out of a three-way tie for the lead. His performances helped Tech win twice and earn two runner-up finishes in four fall events.

Schniederjans posted a cumulative scoring average of 69.5 and a won-lost record of 309-5 with 11 of 12 rounds at par or under. He finished the fall No. 1 in the Golfstat men’s rankings and No. 2 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Index. Schniederjans has also moved to No. 12 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings and he is the seventh highest ranked American.

His strong play is a continuance of his sophomore season, in which he helped Georgia Tech advance to the NCAA national semifinals. This summer, Schniederjans finished second in the Dogwood Invitational, fourth in the Southern Amateur, tied for 10th in the Players Amateur and qualified for the United State Amateur.

Schniederjans and Georgia Tech teammate Anders Albertson, the former Etowah High School star, are currently playing in the Western Refining All-American Golf Classic at the El Paso Country Club in El Paso, Texas. The field includes 17 of the top 100 amateur golfers in the world.
