PGA Tour Delays Player of the Year Voting

Ballots for the PGA Tour’s Player of the Year voting were scheduled to go out this week, but they’ve been pushed back two weeks so that voting will take place after next week’s WGC-HSBC Champions in China. The tournament counts as an official PGA Tour win if a Tour member wins, but earnings don’t count towards the official tour money standings.

The HSBC Champions “could affect who’s on the ballot, and it could affect someone’s resume who is on the ballot,” said the tour’s chief of operations, Andy Pazder. “When we send out the ballot, we have a brief summary of the player’s year on the PGA Tour. It would be a glaring omission if someone won the tournament and that wasn’t on there.”

World Number One Luke Donald has already won the PGA Tour money title with his win this past weekend at Disney, as well as the Vardon Trophy for the tour’s lowest scoring average (68.86 strokes per round). Donald said after last week’s win that he expects to get the Player of the Year award too. “Coming into this week, I felt like Webb [Simpson] was probably the favorite, based on he was ahead of me on the money list, and he was ahead of me in wins this year,” said Donald. “Obviously, I’ve drawn level on wins and I’ve gotten ahead on money. Feel like I’ve answered all the questions thrown at me.”

Keegan Bradley could make things interesting with a win in China. Like Donald and Simpson, Bradley has two wins this year, but unlike them, one of his victories was a major.

Donald hasn’t committed to play in China, but says he will if his wife has given birth by then.
