Entering the NCAA Championship, which begins Friday at Grayhawk, 10 players have earned a place on the final watch list for the Fred Haskins Award presented by Stifel.

That list of 10 players is highlighted by Oklahoma State senior Eugenio Chacarra, who is coming off a regional victory in Columbus, Ohio, to push his season total to three wins, most of any player on the watch list. Oklahoma (Chris Gotterup and Logan McAllister) and Vanderbilt (Cole Sherwood and Gordon Sargent) are the only schools with multiple players on the list.

The Haskins Award is awarded annually to the most outstanding men’s college golfer, as voted on by players, coaches and media members. Past winners of the Haskins Award include Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Ben Crenshaw and last season's winner, John Pak.

Voting opens May 23 and ends May 30 one hour after the completion of the stroke-play portion of the NCAA Championship. The winner will be announced on Golf Channel on May 31.
