LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The battle for Rookie of the Year honors
could be decided this week with Jonas Blixt and Ted Potter Jr. both
in the field. Blixt and Potter have each won once this season (as
has John Huh, who is not here). Here is a look at Blixt and Potter.
Who do you think should be Rookie of the Year? Discuss below.
Blixt vs. Potter
Blixt became the eighth Swedish player to win on
TOUR with his victory at the Frys.com Open. The Jacksonville Beach,
Fla., resident is making his first start at the Children’s
Miracle Netwok Hospitals Classic. At No. 35 on the official money
list, he is looking to jump into the top 30 to grab a spot in the
2013 Masters. Potter, a 28-year-old native of Ocala, Fla., entered
the final round of The Greenbrier Classic trailing Webb Simpson by
four strokes before shooting a 6-under 64 (including an
eagle-birdie finish) to end regulation at 16 under and in a tie
with Troy Kelly, whom he beat with a birdie on the third playoff
hole for his first career win.
