LEXINGTON, Kentucky – Alex Goff, a graduate student on the Kentucky men’s golf team, has been added to the Final Fall Haskins Award presented by Stiefl Watch List, the Haskins Foundation announced Thursday. Now in its 54th year, the award is given annually to the top male U.S. collegiate golfer as voted on by only college golfers, coaches and members of the golf media.
Goff is one of eight Southeastern Conference golfers named to the 20-man midseason list.
Goff, a Second-Team All-SEC selection and PING All-Southeast Region pick a year ago, leads the Cats and ranks fourth in the SEC with a 69.36 scoring average this season, to go along with nine of 11 rounds under par. Dating back to last season, the Kings Mountain, North Carolina, native has posted a top-10 finish in nine of his last 11 tournaments, finishing solo second or a tie for second in six of those.
To date, Goff has posted the Wildcats’ best career scoring average at 71.50, ahead of current UK assistant Chip McDaniel’s 72.02 average. Goff’s 66 career rounds of par-or-better sit third in program history behind McDaniel’s 71 and J.B. Holmes’ program best 86.
Kentucky is off until it opens its spring schedule Feb. 5-6 at the Battle at Briar’s Creek in Johns Island, South Carolina.
