No Question Mark Concerning This Award

The PGA Tour finally announced its remaining awards... and there were no real surprises.

It's certainly no surprise that Rory McIlroy won Player of the Year. Four PGA Tour wins, including an 8-shot win at the PGA, the money title, and the scoring title will do that for you.

John Huh photoAnd, in my opinion, the Rookie of the Year winner was no surprise. While there was a lot of debate, particularly about Jonas Blixt's late-season run, I never thought anybody should have gotten it besides John Huh, the notorious Question Mark. He was the fastest to the winner's circle (at the Mayakoba in February), he had a runner-up (at Valero), and he was the only rookie to make it to the Tour Championship, finishing 29th in the FedExCup standings and booking a trip to the 2013 Masters. He's currrently #71 in the OWGR.

Barring someone else having multiple wins, I don't know how anybody could overlook his accomplishments.

Huh also becomes the first Korean player to win Rookie of the Year -- at least, on the PGA. I know that doesn't figure into the voting for ROY, but it's another first for him.

For my money, the Tour got it right this year. There was no question mark in my mind who should have been Rookie of the Year... and now the Question Mark has it.
