Spieth Voted PGA Tour Rookie of the Year

Updated: Friday, September 27 2013, 07:51 PM CDT

The PGA TOUR announced Friday that former Texas Men's Golf All-American Jordan Spieth was voted Rookie of the Year by the TOUR's membership for the 2013 season.
 
PGA TOUR members who played in at least 12 official money events in 2013 were eligible to vote following the conclusion of the TOUR Championship. The balloting process ended Sept. 26. Tiger Woods was voted PGA TOUR Player of the Year.
 
“On behalf of the PGA TOUR, my congratulations to Tiger and Jordan for their impressive performances in 2013,” said PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem. “Jordan’s rookie season was historic in terms of his accomplishments for a player just 20 years old.”
 
Spieth, who started the 2013 PGA TOUR Season with no PGA TOUR status after turning professional last fall, made history at the John Deere Classic where he became the youngest player (19 years, 11 months and 18 days) to win on the PGA TOUR since Ralph Guldahl (19 years, 8 months, 3 days) at the 1931 Santa Monica Open.
 
In 23 starts, Spieth tied Brandt Snedeker and Bill Haas for most top-10 finishes on TOUR with nine, including runner-up finishes at the Puerto Rico Open by seepuertorico.com, Wyndham Championship and the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola. He finished seventh in the FedExCup and became the youngest player in TOUR Championship history at 20 years, 1 month and 26 days.
 
"It's a tremendous honor," Spieth said. "It's been a great year for rookies on the PGA TOUR."
 
No. 810 in the Official World Golf Ranking after a missed cut at the Farmers Insurance Open in January in his first professional PGA TOUR start, Spieth is currently 21st in the OWGR.
 
On Sept. 4, Spieth was named a Captain’s Pick by Fred Couples to the U.S. Presidents Cup Team. The Presidents Cup 2013 takes place next week at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.
 
Spieth was voted PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year over Derek Ernst, Russell Henley and David Lingmerth.
