Trio of men's golfers make preseason watch list

The Big Ten Conference announced its 2018-19 preseason watch list for men's golf and tabbed Penn State seniors Charles Huntzinger and JD Hughes, and junior Ryan Davis.

Huntzinger earned Big Ten honors for the third-straight year in 2018 and recorded top-five finishes as the Windon Memorial Classic and the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate. The Duluth, Georgia, native had the second-lowest scoring average last season and posted a top-20 showing in the Pacific Coast Amateur this past summer.

With two top-five finishes in regular-season play and the second-best score in the NCAA Regional, Hughes returns to collegiate play following a top-10 finish at the Pennsylvania Open. Hughes resume includes a Pennsylvania Amateur championship (2017) and status as a 2016 U.S. Amateur qualifier.

Davis heads into this junior campaign coming off his 2018 MET Amateur championship earlier this month. From Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, Davis competed in 12 events for the Nittany Lions in 2017-18 including the Big Ten Championship and NCAA Regional.
