National champion, Oklahoma State sophomore Matthew Wolff wins 2019 Haskins Award

By

Oklahoma State’s Matthew Wolff has to make some more room on his trophy shelf.

Last week the Cowboy sophomore won the individual national title at the men’s 2019 NCAA Championship, and on Tuesday night he was honored with the 2019 Haskins Award as Player of the Year in men’s college golf.

Wolff, who set a program record with five wins during the 2018-19 regular season, beat out finalists Steven Fisk of Georgia Southern and Oklahoma State teammate Viktor Hovland. The award also comes with a sponsor exemption for September’s Military Tribute Greenbrier Classic on the PGA Tour.

The trophy for the Haskins Award, given to the top player in college men’s golf by the Haskins Commission.

On top of his six total wins, Wolff lead the nation with a 68.69 scoring average, earning Golf Coaches Association of America First Team All-American honors.

Wolff, who started and ended his season with wins, was the top individual at Oklahoma State’s first tournament of the year, The Carmel Cup. He followed that 17-under performance with another win at the Fighting Illini Invitational. His third win was shared with Hovland at the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate, the Cowboys’ penultimate tournament of the Fall. Wolff got right back to his winning ways in the Spring’s first event, taking the trophy at the Amer Ari Invitational at 18-under. His final regular season win came at the Valspar Collegiate Invitational in March. His sixth win was at the 2019 NCAA Championship.

Wolff is the eighth Oklahoma State player to claim the award and first since 2006.

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 player in college golf.
