Lewis, Hall Earn Second Team All-SEC Selections as Murphy Garners SEC All-Freshman Team Honors

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Southeastern Conference announced its postseason awards Friday morning with redshirt seniors Bryce Lewis and Jake Hall earning Second Team All-SEC honors as Bruce Murphy garnered SEC All-Freshman Team honors.

For the third consecutive year in a row and fourth time under head coach Brennan Webb, two Tennessee golfers have earned All-SEC honors. Additionally, this marks back-to-back seasons with SEC All-Freshman team selections.

Bryce Lewis | Redshirt Senior | Hendersonville, Tenn. | Second Team All-SEC

Named Second Team All-SEC for three consecutive seasons, Lewis is now the fourth Vol in program history to be a three-time All-SEC selection. The Hendersonville, Tennessee, native currently holds a 70.04 season stroke average with four top-10 finishes, with his most recent being a sixth-place finish at the SEC Championships.

Jake Hall | Redshirt Senior | Knoxville, Tenn. | Second Team All-SEC

Hall has been a consistent force for the Vols this season and holds a season stroke average of 69.93 along with three top-10 finishes, including a tied for seventh finish at the SEC Championships. Hall’s highest finish of the season came at the Cabo Collegiate where he tied for fourth place in a field with 18 of the top 50 amateurs in the world.

Bruce Murphy | Redshirt Freshman | Atlanta, Ga. | SEC All-Freshman Team

Murphy has provided a spark for the Vols during the spring. In February, he earned individual medalist honors at the Wolfpack Individual Invitational after shooting 11-under overall, which then went to earn him SEC Golfer of the Week Honors. Additionally, Murphy notched a sixth-place finish at the Lewis Chitengwa Memorial in April. His performance at the Lewis Chitengwa Memorial guided him to an SEC Freshman of the Week performance.
