Clemson golfers Matt Hendrix, Jack Ferguson and Gregg Jones are among 34 NCAA Division I, II or III golfers named to the Watch List for the 2004 Ben Hogan Award. The Award is presented by the Friends of Golf and Colonial Country Club of Fort Worth, TX in cooperation with Bank of America and the Collegiate Golf Coach's Association.
The award, named in honor of golfing legend Ben Hogan, takes into account all collegiate and amateur competitions during the previous 12 months. The Hogan Award selection committee will choose 10 semifinalists on April 14, name five finalists on April 27, then announce the winner on May 6. There will be a banquet to honor the recipient at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, TX on May 17, the Monday prior to the Bank of America Colonial on the PGA Tour. Former Clemson All-American D.J. Trahan won the award in the 2001-02 academic year.
Clemson and UCLA are the only schools with three players on the 2004 Watch List. Clemson's three players on the list have combined for 10 top 10 finishes, 29 under par rounds and 39 at par or
better so far this year.
Hendrix, a senior from Aiken, SC, won the Puerto Rico Classic with a 207 score February 24 and has the top stroke average on the
Clemson team this year with a 71.10 figure. He has 13 under par rounds to lead the Tigers in his 20 rounds so far this year. He won
the Sunnehanna Amateur and was a member of the United States Walker Cup team.
Ferguson, a junior from Seneca, SC, is second on the team in stroke average with a 71.48 figure. He has three top 10 finishes
this year, including a fifth-place at the Carpet Classic in Dalton, GA last fall. Jones, a senior from Florence, SC, has a 72.30 stroke
average this year and has three top 10 finishes including a season best third-place at the North Florida Collegiate. He also won the
Jones Cup in 2003.
All three Clemson golfers will be back in action when Clemson travels to the Atlanta Intercollegiate Invitational at Eagles
Landing in McDonough, GA next Monday and Tuesday.
