BLITZ Boys Golfer of the Year nominees
This was a tough job to compile even a portion of what we normally would. Many programs could not get a single match in, and most just one or two.
WHAT’S NEXT? We’ll take our nominee group down to a finalist pool.
NOTE: Dawson County, Lumpkin County, Tallulah Falls, Towns County, Union County, and White County did not nominate a player for their program.
NEW FOR 2020: BLITZ will pick a finalist group, and then have another group for the “FAN VOTE: ONE LAST FINALIST” to be included for consideration for Golfer of the Year. Be on the lookout for that.
