TaylorMade-adidas Tour Staff Professional Brandt Snedeker Named 2007 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year
Snedeker Finishes 20th on the FedEx Cup Points List and Earns more than $2 million in his First Tour Season
CARLSBAD, Calif. (December 12, 2007)
TaylorMade-adidas Golf Tour Staff Professional Brandt Snedeker was named PGA Tour Rookie of the Year after a sensational 2007 season which included a win at the Wyndham Championship and six top-10 finishes.
"This has been a wonderful season for me and to finish it by being voted by my peers as the Rookie of the Year is tremendous," Snedeker said. "When I looked at the list of TOUR players who have been honored in such a way, I am humbled to have my name alongside them."
Snedeker, 27, who played on the Nationwide Tour a season ago, elevated his status on the PGA Tour when he captured his first career PGA Tour win at the Wyndham Championship. On the final day of the tournament at Forest Oaks Country Club, Snedeker needed what he called the "best swing of his life," a TaylorMade® r7® TP 3-iron to land the ball close on the par-three 17th to setup a birdie that moved him ahead of fellow TaylorMade-adidas Staff professional Tim Petrovic.
Snedeker finished 20th on the FedEx Cup points list and earned $2,836,643 – the third highest rookie total in history. This was the second time in three years that a TaylorMade-adidas Golf Tour Staff Professional took home Rookie of the Year honors (Sean O' Hair in 2005).
