Feb. 12, 2015
Trojan sophomore Rico Hoey is one of 14 collegiate players that will play in the inaugural Northern Trust Open Collegiate Showcase on Monday (Feb. 16), paired with current and former PGA players from the same school, as well as a pair of amateurs, the PGA announced Wednesday (Feb. 11).
Hoey was a 2014 All-American third teamer as a freshman and the Pac-12's 2014 Freshman of the Year. He has three top 5 finishes already this season and eight rounds in the 60s. He will play with former Trojan Dave Stockton Jr., a 10-year PGA pro and a 1989 All-American honorable mention pick.
Each team will compete for the Collegiate Showcase Trophy and a $50,000 donation to the winning school's golf program. The collegian winner will also earn an amateur's exemption into the Northern Trust Open, beginning Thursday (Feb. 19).
Tee times begin at 8:30 a.m.
