Washington senior Chris Williams is the 2013 Ben Hogan Award recipient.

Williams, of Moscow, Idaho, is No. 1 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings. He won the 2012 Mark H. McCormack Medal as the world’s top-ranked amateur. With the McCormack Medal, Williams clinched berths into the 2013 U.S. Open and the Open Championship. He won the 2012 Western Amateur match-play and stroke-play titles and was a quarterfinalist at the U.S. Amateur.

He played on Team USA at the World Amateur Team Championships in Turkey and also competed on Team USA in the Palmer Cup and the Copa de las Americas.

For the Huskies, Williams had seven top-10 finishes in 11 events during the 2012-13 season. He was a first-team All-Pac-12 selection, with a 71.06 stroke average.

Williams is the second Husky to win the award, joining Nick Taylor (2010). He is the second straight winner from the Pac-12 Conference (Patrick Cantlay, UCLA).

By claiming the Ben Hogan Award, Williams was presented an exemption into the PGA Tour’s 2014 Crowne Plaza Invitational.
