NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — This season Reid Davenport became the Robin to John Augenstein's Batman on a Vanderbilt golf team that once again was ranked in the top 10 and eyeing the program's first ever national championship when the season was canceled.

And you know Robin deserves a Curtain Call too.

Coming off two state titles in high school back in Texas, Davenport was an immediate contributor as a freshman at Vanderbilt. He helped the Commodores get back to the NCAA Championships.

But his game really took off this season. Davenport posted five rounds in the 60's, including three 68's, on the way to a stroke average of just over 71. He had a top-five, a top-10 and finished every event in the top 20 to earn second team All-SEC honors.

He also joined Augenstein in the long line of Vanderbilt golf All-Americans. He was given honorable mention in April.

Davenport took a big step as a sophomore, and now he will get a starring role for the rest of his Vandy career.
