    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:
    Zac Blair paced eight rookies at The Barclays, six of whom advance to the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs. In fact, his share of fourth place matches the record for best finish by a rookie in the tournament during the FedExCup Playoffs. Kevin Streelman set the standard in 2008 at Ridgewood Country Club. Meanwhile, Jonathan Randolph (MC) and Carlos Sainz Jr. (T34) competed at the Web.com Tour's WinCo Foods Portland Open. (The Web.com Tour Finals begin on Sept. 10.)
    LOW ROOKIE: Zac Blair, T4. Third time (T6, Sony; T11, Farmers).
    CAREER-BEST FINISHES (AND TIES):  Zac Blair (T4).
                                           
    * - In the field at the Deutsche Bank Championship as of Aug. 30.
    ^ - Patrick Rodgers, Cameron Smith and Danny Willett have Special Temporary Membership, but none qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs. As a result, the number in parentheses in the FedExCup Rank column reflects where each would have ranked among members at the conclusion of the PGA TOUR Season (through the Wyndham Championship).

    NOTE: A player’s rookie season ("Rookie Year") is defined as the season in which he becomes a PGA TOUR member (including Special Temporary Members) and plays in 10 or more events as a member or finishes in the Top 125 on the Official FedExCup Points List, the Top 125 on the Official PGA TOUR Money List or qualifies as a Top 125 - Nonmember, whichever occurs first. Further, for purposes of this definition, a new member (including Special Temporary Members) shall not be eligible for the PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year if he has previously played in more than seven (7) Official PGA TOUR Money events as a professional in any prior season.
