Auburn Golfers Blayne Barber and Michael Hebert were named All-America Scholars on Wednesday by the Golf Coaches Association of America.

Auburn, Ala.—Auburn golfers Blayne Barber and Michael Hebert were named Division I Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars, an award sponsored by the Golf Coaches Association of America.

Barber posted a scoring average of 70.76 last season, snapping Buddy Gardner’s 36-year-old record that was set in 1976. Barber also holds the stroke-average record (70.83) for an Auburn career.

Finishing the year with seven top five finishes, Barber was ranked No. 7 in the nation in the Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings at the conclusion of the season, becoming the first Auburn golfer to be named a first team All-American since Chip Spratlin and Iain Steel in 1995. Barber turned pro earlier this summer.

Hebert, who finished tied for ninth at the Gator Invitational that Auburn won by 16 strokes, participated in seven tournaments last season. He recorded the fifth-best scoring average on the team at 73.51.

An academic junior or senior may be eligible for Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar status by competing in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participating in 70 percent of his team’s competitive rounds or completing in the NCAA Championships, having a stroke-average under 76.0 in Division I and maintaining a minimum grade-point average of 3.2.
