College golf is back, which means it’s time to look at Player of the Year candidates. The Annika Award presented by Stifel honors the player of the year in college men’s golf, as selected by college golfers, coaches and members of the college golf media. Last year, Rose Zhang dominated college golf, earning the Annika Award for the second straight year.
She went on to win her first start as a professional at the Mizuho Americas Open and is now a part of the United States Solheim Cup team. On Monday, the Annika Foundation announced its 2023-24 Annika Award preseason watch list. The players are listed alphabetically. Players on the Annika Award Watch List were selected by a panel of Golfweek and Golf Channel writers. Here’s a look at the 25 golfers on the preseason watch list.
