Haskins Award Watch List: March 8, 2018

The Fred Haskins Award presented by Stifel is given annually to the best college golfer, as voted by players, coaches and media. And Golfweek keeps everyone up to date all season with its Haskins Award Watch List.

Haskins Award winners over the years include such notables as Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Luke Donald. Ole Miss’ Braden Thornberry won the award last season after capturing the individual title at the NCAA Championship.

With March now here and two top spring events just wrapping up, in Mexico and Las Vegas, let’s take a took at the current top 20 Haskins Award contenders:
