Longhorn senior Bobby Hudson is one of 26 collegiate golfers recently named to the watch list for the 2011 Ben Hogan Award.

The Hogan Award is regarded as the most prestigious award in men’s amateur golf, and is annually presented to the top golfer in Division I, II, or III, NAIA or NJCAA. Last year’s winner was University of Washington’s Nick Taylor.

Semifinalists for the award will be announced April 14. The three finalists will be invited to Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas, for the Hogan Award presentation on the evening of May 16.
