Iowa men’s golfers Steven Ihm and Joseph Winslow were both named to All-Big Ten teams Wednesday afternoon.

Junior Ihm was one of six players named to the first-team All-Big Ten squad. The Peosta, Iowa, native had a team-best 72.86 stroke average. Ihm won back-to-back tournaments earlier this year, taking titles at the Hawkeye-Great River Entertainment Invitational on April 14 and the Boilermaker Invitational on April 21.

He was the first Hawkeye to take medalist honors in consecutive weeks since Brad Schuchat in 1970. Ihm also had earned a team high four top-10 finishes.

Sophomore Winslow was named to the second-team All-Big Ten squad. Winslow was second in stroke average of 73.48 — second best on the team. The Overland Park, Kan., native notched two top-5 finishes this spring, including a tie for fifth at this season’s Big Ten championships, which were held last weekend.

“Each of them have been consistent, which is the key to these awards,” head coach Mark Hankins said in a release. “It’s important to have the great finishes but to also minimize the weeks that you aren’t playing at the top of your game. I’m proud of them. They each deserve these prestigious awards.”
