Christo Lamprecht Named to Haskins Award Watch List

Columbus, Ga. – Georgia Tech’s Christo Lamprecht, who won The Amateur Championship this summer and earned the Silver Medal as low amateur at The Open Championship, is among 24 golfers named Tuesday the pre-season watch list for the 2024 Fred Haskins Award, given annually to the nation’s top male United States collegiate golfer.

The senior from George, South Africa, currently sits No. 3 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking and is No. 2 in the pre-season PGA Tour University ranking of the nation’s top eligible seniors. He has been named a pre-season, first-team All-American by both Golf Channel and Golfweek magazine.

Ranked No. 6 nationally by Golfstat and No. 8 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Index at the end of last spring, Lamprecht was a finalist for the 2023 Haskins Award and a first-team All-American by both the Golf Coaches Association of America and Golfweek magazine. The 6-foot-8 senior had a victory and three runner-up finishes in 2022-23, winning the Inverness Intercollegiate in the fall, and then finishing second at the Watersound Invitational, the Linger Longer Invitational and The Goodwin in the spring. Selected to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference team for the second straight year, Lamprecht led the Yellow Jackets to the program’s 19th ACC Championship, the title at the NCAA Salem Regional and a runner-up finish at the NCAA Championship. He was the team’s highest finisher in six of 12 stroke play events.

Lamprecht aims to join four Georgia Tech golfers who have previously won the Fred Haskins Award: David Duval (1993), Stewart Cink (1995), Matt Kuchar (1998) and Bryce Molder (2001).

Tech opens its 2023 fall season Sept. 15-17 at the Olympia Fields/Fighting Illini Invitational in Olympia Fields, Ill.
