Georgia Tech is playing this season with the reigning U.S. Amateur champion on the roster – Andy Ogletree. After winning two team titles, the Yellow Jackets also now have the top spot in the latest Bushnell/Golfweek Coaches Poll.

The Yellow Jackets received 19 first-place votes, followed by second-ranked Wake Forest, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, and Pepperdine round out the top-five.

While week-to-week historical poll data isn’t available, it has been some time since Georgia Tech finished a season with a No. 1 ranking. That wasn’t the coaches poll, but rather the Golfweek/Sagarin College Ranking. Tech finished the 2001-02 season as the No. 1 team in the country by that rating. As of Wednesday, Georgia Tech also had the No. 1 spot in the Golfweek/Sagarins.

Georgia Tech is in the midst of hosting the Golf Club of Georgia Collegiate this week.

The Yellow Jackets received 19 first-place votes, followed by second-ranked Wake Forest, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, and Pepperdine round out the top-five.

BYU joined the ranking this week, jumping all the way to No. 6, while Arizona State, SMU, Notre Dame, Duke (T-10), and Louisville (T-10) all earned a spot in the Top-10.
