PGA Tour: Scottie Scheffler wins the Jack Nicklaus Award as PGA Tour Player of the Year for the second consecutive season. Scheffler, No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking, is the first player to win Player of the Year honors in back-to-back seasons since Tiger Woods won the award three successive years (2005-2007). Also, Eric Cole, the only rookie to advance to the 2023 BMW Championship, wins PGA Tour Rookie of the Year honors and receives the Arnold Palmer Award. Both awards are determined by a member vote — Scheffler received 38% of the vote for the Jack Nicklaus Award; Cole received 51% of the vote for the Arnold Palmer Award.
