22 named to Hogan watch list

Chesapeake Energy, in association with Colonial CC, The Friends of Golf (FOG) and the Golf Coaches Association of America, announced the watch list for the 2009 Ben Hogan Award, given annually to the top men's college golfer taking into account all collegiate and amateur competitions during a 12-month period.

As I referenced on Campus Insider the other day, no real surprises from the Division I ranks. Last year's winner, Rickie Fowler of Oklahoma State, is on the list, along with 21 other candidates (that said, omission from this list doesn't mean you are no longer eligible for the award).

Ten semifinalists will be announced April 16 with three finalists named May 7 and invited to Colonial CC in Fort Worth for the Hogan Award presentation on May 22.
