Craig on Winings
"Fortunately, we have Andy Winings for one more year. Unfortunately, we only have Andy Winings for one more year. Andy is a true leader, a tireless worker, a fierce competitor, and has what I would call a complete game. When you combine all of these qualities, you get one of the finest players in all of college golf who deserves every bit of the success that he achieves. I fully expect Andy to finish his career as one of the best Wildcats ever and lead this team back to where we belong among the nation's elite."
