Emily Beach and Isaac Robinson take home Rookie honors.
Wysocki has now been named the “Ken Climo Player of the Year” for two years in a row after finishing the season at the top of the DGPT standings and winning the Tour Championship. Wysocki was the top player on the media ballots, which comprised 33% of the scoring for the award. One-third of the scoring was based on Tour points standings, and the final third was determined by the players’ average finish at Majors and the Tour Championship.
Kristin Tattar won her first “Elaine King Player of the Year” award in a landslide. She was first in every scoring category after averaging a 1.33 place finish at the Majors and Tour Championship, which included wins at the TC and World Championships. She was the unanimous #1 selection on the media ballots.

The Most Improved awards are determined by a 50/50 split of the media and fan voting components. Gannon Buhr was first in both categories; Valerie Mandujano finished first in the media vote but 2nd in the fan voting behind Kristin Tattar.

Both players won their first Elite Series or Major events this year, with Mandujano taking down the Waco Annual Charity Open and Portland Open and Buhr claiming the USDGC crown.
