The fall season in college golf is winding to a close, which means it’s time to recognize players who set themselves apart as frontrunners in men’s college golf over the past two and a half months.
The Haskins Award presented by Stifel honors the player of the year in men’s college golf, as selected by college golfers, coaches and members of the college golf media. The players are listed alphabetically. Players on the Haskins Award Watch List were selected by a panel of Golfweek and Golf Channel reporters.
Here’s a look at the 20 players on the Haskins Award final fall watch list.
