It’s early in the college golf season (yes, we know), but some fab freshmen have made more of an impact than others.

There is just one preseason top 10 freshman – Alabama’s Robby Shelton – who has won an event, but two more freshmen – Florida State’s Jack Maguire and Washington’s Corey Pereira – are inside the top 50 of the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings.

Take a look at our preseason top-10 fab freshman and how they have fared in their first couple of tournaments for their respective teams.
