Golf: Nimmer Named Finalist For Haskins Award

Bluffton native Bryson Nimmer was named Monday as one of 10 finalists for the Fred Haskins Award, which is presented each year to the top collegiate golfer.

The Clemson star and Hilton Head Christian Academy alumnus previously was named the ACC Player of the Year and is set to lead the Tigers into the NCAA Championships beginning Friday at The Blessings Course in Fayetteville, Arkansas. 

Nimmer leads the Tigers with a 69.06 scoring average this season, which is on pace to be the best in program history, and 26 of his 33 rounds this season have been at par or better, including 24 rounds under par. He has finished in the top 10 in 10 of his 11 events this season with seven top-five finishes, including four victories.

Nimmer has already set the Clemson records for rounds in the 60s in a season (20) and in a career (46), and his 28 career top-10 finishes are also a Clemson record. He is currently ranked seventh nationally by Golfweek and ninth by Golfstat.

The other finalists for the Haskins Award are Viktor Howland of Oklahoma State, Matt Wolff of Oklahoma State, Collin Morikawa of California, Cole Hammer of Texas, Justin Suh of Southern California, Will Gordon of Vanderbilt, Steven Fisk of Georgia Southern, and Chun An Yu of Arizona State.
