CI Podcast/San Diego St.'s J.J. Spaun


As he begins play today at the U.S. Intercollegiate at Stanford GC, San Diego State senior J.J. Spaun is riding a three-tournament winning streak and has become a dark-horse candidate for national player of the year honors. The 21-year-old from San Dimas, Calif., has played in eight events during the 2011-12 season, posting four top-three finishes, five top-10s, just one showing outside the top-12 and a 70.63 stroke average.

Does he deserve POY consideration? Listen to the podcast and you be the judge.
