THE FLATS – Georgia Tech’s Christo Lamprecht, currently ranked among the top 10 players in men’s college golf, has been named to the final watch list for the Fred Haskins Award presented by Stifel, given to the nation’s top player. The 2023 award winner will be announced and presented with the award Tuesday, May 30, on Golf Channel.
The 10 contenders, listed in alphabetical order, are Ludvig Aberg of Texas Tech, Adrien Dumont de Chassart of Illinois, David Ford of North Carolina, Benjamin James of Virginia, Tommy Kuhl of Illinois, Christo Lamprecht of Georgia Tech, Maxwell Moldovan of Ohio State, Gordon Sargent of Vanderbilt, Preston Summerhays of Arizona State and Michael Thorbjornsen of Stanford.
Ranked No. 6 nationally by Golfstat and No 5 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Index, Lamprecht has a victory and three runner-up finishes in 2022-23. The junior from George, South Africa won the Inverness Intercollegiate in the fall, and this spring has finished second at the Watersound Invitational, the Linger Longer Invitational and The Goodwin. Selected to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference team for the second straight year, Lamprecht led the Yellow Jackets to the program’s 19th ACC Championship and the title at the NCAA Salem Regional. He has been the team’s highest finisher in six of 10 stroke play events. His 69.17 stroke average would stand as a Georgia Tech record if maintained for the remainder of the spring, and he has averaged 68.72 over 18 rounds this spring.
Lamprecht, also one of 10 semifinalists for the Ben Hogan Award, is currently No. 10 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking and has been named to compete for the International team in the 2023 Arnold Palmer Cup.
The Haskins Award has not gone to a Georgia Tech player since Bryce Molder was honored in 2001. David Duval (1993), Stewart Cink (1995) and Matt Kuchar (1998) also have won the Haskins Award.
