Garcia receives the Vardon Trophy

3/4/2009

European Tour Member Sergio Garcia formally received the Vardon Trophy from the PGA of America CEO Joe Steranka at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens in Florida

In November the Spaniard became the first European born player since 1937, and first from his homeland, to win the prestigious trophy first presented to English-born Harry "Lighthorse" Cooper in 1937 for season-long scoring excellence.

It completed a superb season in America for European Tour Members , during which two of The PGA of America's prestigious season-ending awards were won by European players, with Ireland’s Padraig Harrington taking the  PGA Player of the Year honours.
 
Garcia completed 72 official rounds on the PGA Tour, posting an adjusted scoring average of 69.12. Phil Mickelson was runner-up with a 69.17 adjusted averages based on 80 rounds, while new European Tour Member Anthony Kim was third at 69.28 based on 81 rounds.
 
Since 1937, the Vardon Trophy, named by The PGA of America in honour of famous British golfer Harry Vardon, is awarded annually to the touring professional with the lowest adjusted scoring average. It is based on a minimum of 60 rounds, with no incomplete rounds, in events co-sponsored or designated by the PGA Tour. The adjusted score is computed from the average score of the field at each event.
