Parry named Australian Player of the Year

Craig Parry has been named Australia’s player of the year for 2002 by Australian Golf Digest.

While Karrie Webb had won the award for the last three years, Parry’s victories at the New Zealand Open in January and the NEC Invitational in August - both in fields that included world No.1 Tiger Woods - made him a worthy winner.

Robert Allenby was also prominent in the award after another solid season in the United States, though unlike in 2000 and 2001, he failed to win a single event.

And Webb, who added the British Open to her haul of majors this year, wasn’t empty-handed, being named female player of the year.

And in other awards, Nadina Taylor is the rookie of the year, Stewart Ginn the senior player of 2002, Marcus Fraser the amateur player of the season, Nick Flanagan junior player of the year and Danny Vera the trainee award winner.
