Phillips Named to Hogan Award Watch List

FORT WORTH, Texas – For the second time in his career, senior Chandler Phillips has been named to the Ben Hogan Award Watch List, as announced by the Hogan Trophy Award Foundation, the Friends of Golf (FOG) and the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) Wednesday afternoon. The award is given annually to the top men’s NCAA Division I, II or III, NAIA or NJCAA college golfer taking into account all collegiate and amateur competitions during a 12-month period from June to May.

Phillips is out to a record-setting start to his final season with the Aggies after an impressive junior outing that saw him earn All-America First Team honors. He, along with former teammate and current PGA Tour player Cameron Champ, was most recently named to the Watch List at the start of the 2017 season.

The Huntsville, Texas native won the 2019 Arizona Intercollegiate, A&M’s first event of the season. He is the first Aggie to win the event, shooting a school record 19-under through two days of play. He previously held two of the top three 54-hole records program records, setting a mark each of the last two seasons. A three-time All-SEC honoree, Phillips’ season-opening win upped his program-best career tournament wins total to seven.

Phillips and the Aggies will return to action Feb. 21-23 when they travel to Lihue, Hawai’i for the John A. Burns Intercollegiate.
