STANFORD, Calif. – Senior Cameron Wilson is one of five finalists for the Byron Nelson Award, as announced Tuesday by the Golf Coaches Association of America.
Wilson made the final cut for the award presented by Cleveland Golf/Srixon along with Brandon Hagy and Joel Stalter of Cal, Northwestern’s Jack Perry and Alabama’s Cory Whitsett.
Candidates for the Nelson Award must be a graduating senior, and the selection committee considers equally a nominee’s entire collegiate academic and golf career as well as his character and integrity while in college. Particular consideration is given to a nominee’s good citizenship, as portrayed by Byron Nelson over the course of his life and golf career.
The recipient of the Nelson Award will be named May 1.
Wilson is also the top-ranked United States player in the Palmer Cup Player Rankings released April 2.
