Among the three finalists for the Hogan Award, winning has been a common trait.

The May 4 announcement on Golfweek.com puts UCLA’s Patrick Cantlay and Oklahoma State teammates Kevin Tway and Peter Uihlein in the running for the player-of-the-year honor in college and amateur golf.

The award will be live-streamed on Golfweek.com beginning at 8 p.m. EDT May 16 at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. Golfweek’s Asher Wildman will serve as host, and Hall-of-Famer Ben Crenshaw will be the featured speaker.

The finalists:

• Uihlein, No. 1 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings, has six top-4 finishes in eight college events, including two victories, for the top-ranked Cowboys. The junior from Orlando, Fla., is the reigning U.S. Amateur, Sahalee Players and Dixie Amateur champion.

• Cantlay, ranked No. 3, has won three times in 10 college starts. The freshman from Los Alamitos, Calif., was a semifinalist at the U.S. Amateur (losing to Uihlein) and runner-up at the Southern Amateur.

• Tway, ranked No. 4, has nine top 10s in 12 college events, including one victory. The senior from Edmond, Okla., won last summer’s Players Amateur.
