Trio of alumni named finalists for Ben Hogan Award

Golfweek Coverage

Three AJGA alumni have been named finalists for the 2012 Ben Hogan Award, which is presented annually to the top men's NCAA Division I, II or III, NAIA or NJCAA college golfer. Patrick Cantlay (sophomore, UCLA), Patrick Rodgers (freshman, Stanford) and Jordan Spieth (freshman, Texas) combined for 10 national junior golf victories and six nods to the Rolex Junior All-America First Team during their AJGA careers.

 

The trio competed against each other at two AJGA events. At the 2010 HP Boys Championship at Carlton Woods, Spieth led the way with a runner-up finish, while all three players finished in the top 10 at the 2009 PING Invitational.

 

For the 17th time in the last 18 years, an AJGA alum will receive the Ben Hogan Award when the winner is announced at the banquet on May 21 at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas.

 

Patrick Cantlay

Cantlay carded 10 top-10 finishes in 19 AJGA tournaments, including a win at the 2008 ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior. He was a first-team Rolex Junior All-American in 2008 and 2009, and is a Hogan Award finalist for the second straight year.

 

 

Patrick Rodgers

In addition to being a two-time Rolex Junior All-American, Rodgers also earned HP Scholastic Junior All-America honors twice during his AJGA career. He recorded a 3-1-0 record for the East Wyndham Cup Team in 2010, and also won the 2010 Western Junior.

 

In 2010, Rodgers wrote weekly blog entries for Golfweek.com.

 

Jordan Spieth

Spieth posted 16 consecutive top 10s to finish an AJGA career that included five victories. He won the U.S. Junior Amateur twice (2009, 2011), was the 2009 Rolex Junior Player of the Year and was a three-time first-team Rolex Junior All-American.

 

Watch the video recap from Spieth’s AJGA career-ending win at the 2011 HP Boys Championship at Carlton Woods.
