Sharpshooter up for prestigious award

Levin has won three golf tournaments this season

Staff report

The accolades keep coming for Spencer Levin.

The UNM junior has been selected as one of three finalists for the most prestigious honor in men's college golf - The Ben Hogan Award, which is presented to the top men's NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA or junior college golfer.

Levin is joined on the list by UNLV's Ryan Moore and Georgia Southern's Aron Price.

The award takes into account all collegiate and amateur competition in the last year.

Levin has been on a tear since last summer, when he was the low amateur at the U. S. Open Championship, tying for 13th place. He prevailed in the Porter Cup, Scratch Players Championship, the California State Amateur and the Northern California State Amateur.

Levin has won three tournaments this season.

He is ranked second in the nation in stroke average at 69.73, just behind his conference rival and fellow Hogan finalist Moore.

Moore is also the defending nation champion and was the low amateur at the Masters, where he tied for 13th.

The winner will be announced May 14.
