Note: This is a list based on our opinions, watching these stellar players week in and week out. More than the rankings go into how we make the list. But, ultimately, this is a award voted on by players, coaches and select media, so this isn't necessarily how things will shake out later this year.

The only two players on the Haskins Award Watch List that played this week were Stanford’s Patrick Rodgers and Central Florida’s Greg Eason.

Both players had decent results and remain in their respective spots on the Watch List.

The Haskins Award, presented by Stifel, is given out annually to the best college player voted on by the players, coaches and media.

Here is Golfweek’s seventh spring edition of the Haskins Award Watch List, which takes a look at some favorites and notables heading into the bulk of the spring season. If a player is not on the list, he can most certainly play his way onto the list during the spring season.

(As the season winds down with only a few weeks remaining, the list will start getting shorter and be narrowed down to the top five in two weeks.)
