The Haskins Award has gone to the nation's top college golfer since 1971 and the list of winners is impressive.
But who was Fred Haskins? The easy answer is that he was a gifted teaching pro at the Country Club of Columbus in Georgia but there were many more layers to this British-born golfer who was born on the edge of the Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake — a windy English course that has brought even the greatest in the game to their knees.
Haskins learned the art of making clubs in his father's shop.
He came to America and became friends with Bobby Jones when he worked at East Lake, the Atlanta course where the Golden Age icon learned the game.
He spent decades as the club pro in Columbus, Ga., teaching boys and girls to play in Saturday morning clinics that never cost more than a dime.
His prodigies were some of the best amateur players of their generation.
Some of his students helped found the Haskins Award, the only award in college golf that allows the players to select the winner.
There is greatness in the players this award honors but there is also greatness in teachers such as Fred Haskins who stood behind these players and taught them the values of the game they play so well.
