Bill Haas got on the phone with The David Glenn Show on Thursday, and the majority of the interview was spent talking of Haas’ time at Wake Forest and his current status as a pro.

Haas is currently ranked as the No. 35 golfer in the world. This year alone he has no missed cuts and three top-10 finishes. While still seeking his first major, Haas has established himself as one of the best on the golf course.

While at Wake Forest, Haas set an NCAA scoring record, won 10 times (most in Wake Forest history) and won the Haskins Award which is the most coveted collegiate golf award offered. Haas has recently received word that he will be entering the Wake Forest Hall of Fame this fall, accompanying his father Jay Haas.

When asked about his Hall of Fame induction, Haas said “it’s something I’m very proud of.” When reminiscing on looking at the pictures of the men in that Hall of Fame, he said “these guys, they’re in this Hall of Fame for what they’ve done outside of Wake, and that was a little bit of a motivating factor for me.”

Haas is definitely ecstatic about being able to share wall space in the Hall of Fame with his father. As for now, though, Haas looks forward to the British Open and attempting to win his first major championship.
