    There are 27 rookies on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15. This feature provides a subjective ranking updated weekly. The Rookie of the Year is voted by PGA TOUR members that make at least 15 starts.

    SNAPSHOT: Only seven of 23 rookies at the Wyndham Championship survived the cut. Tom Hoge co-led after each of the first two rounds, but faded to T38. Instead, Cameron Smith paces the class with a T18. It's the best finish by a rookie at Sedgefield since Jordan Spieth lost in a playoff in 2013. Nine rookies qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs, while Blayne Barber and Whee Kim finished inside the top 125 on the money list to retain their PGA TOUR cards for 2015-16. As the Playoffs begin with this week's Barclays, three rookies are scheduled to compete in the WinCo Foods Portland Open, which concludes the regular season on the Web.com Tour.
    LOW ROOKIE: Cameron Smith, T18. Third time (T5, CIMB; T4, U.S. Open)
