Nick Dougherty named Rookie of the Year

Nick Dougherty is the European Tour Rookie of the Year.

Dougherty, 20, of Liverpool, is the third straight English winner of the Sir Henry Cotton award. Paul Casey won last year and Ian Poulter in 2000.

"My first objective at the start of the year was to retain my card, and I was fortunate enough to achieve that by March," he said. "This is a fantastic way to finish the year, especially when I look at the caliber of people who have won the award in the past."

Previous winners include Tony Jacklin, Sam Torrance, Nick Faldo, Sandy Lyle, José Maria Olazábal, Colin Montgomerie and Sergio Garcia.

Dougherty finished 36th on the tour money list with $573,860. His best showing was a second-place finish at the Qatar Masters.
