Here are the three finalists for the 2019 Haskins Award

By

And then there were three.

The Haskins Award, honoring the Player of the Year in men’s college golf, will be awarded on Tuesday night live on Golf Channel and the hardware will be handed out to one of three players:

Steven Fisk of Georgia Southern, Viktor Hovland of Oklahoma State or his @OSUCowboyGolf teammate, Matthew Wolff, the 2019 individual national champion.

The winner of the Haskins Award, which is presented by Stifel, earns a sponsor exemption in September’s Military Tribute Greenbrier Classic on the PGA Tour.

Let’s review the three finalists:

  • Fisk was a senior at Georgia Southern this year, where he won six times. He was named a Golf Coaches Association of America First Team All-American and was the Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year. His had a 69.03 scoring average during the 2018-19 season.
  • Hovland won three times, was named to the GCAA First Team All-American team, posted a 69.27 scoring average, was low amateur at the Masters and already has taken home the Ben Hogan Award.
  • Wolff, a sophomore, made the cut in February at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, won five times during the regular season, won the 2019 NCAA Div. I men’s individual national championship, was a GCAA First Team All-American and posted a 68.70 scoring average during the season.

The Fred Haskins Commission has overseen the Fred Haskins Award for the past 48 years. The Commission also oversees the ANNIKA Award, given to the top women’s golfer in the college game.

The Haskins Award will be announced live on Golf Central on Tuesday, June 4 at 6 p.m. ET.
