Cameron Young was voted the 2022 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year on Wednesday after a season with five runner-up finishes.

Young, 25, received 94 percent of the membership vote, easily beating out Tom Kim and Sahith Theegala.

Young, with $6,520,598 in winnings in 2021-22, earned the most money in a single season by a rookie in PGA Tour history. That distinction previously belonged to Xander Schauffele ($4,312,674 in 2016-17).

Young ended his rookie season No. 19 in the FedExCup standings and also made his Presidents Cup debut in September.

“Cameron’s career has seen a remarkable rise over the last several years, and he quickly became a favorite among fans last season with the style in which he attacks the golf course,” PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said in a release.

Young graduated from Wake Forest in 2019. He and 2021 winner Will Zalatoris are the first pair from the same college to win Rookie of the Year honors in back-to-back seasons.
