Former Baylor School and University of Georgia golfer Keith Mitchell is among the five nominees for PGA Tour Rookie of the Year.
The 26-year-old Mitchell had four top-10 finishes this season, placed 67th in the final FedEx Cup standings and earned slightly more than $1.64 million. Also nominated for the PGA Tour's top rookie are Aaron Wise, Austin Cook, Satoshi Kodaira and Joaquin Niemann.
"Achieving what I have has been incredible," Mitchell said earlier this month, "and it's a great steppingstone for next season."
Wise is favored to win the award, having placed 24th in the FedEx Cup standings and having won May's AT&T Byron Nelson Classic in Dallas. Cook also was a winner, capturing the RSM Classic in Sea Island, Georgia, last November, and finished 38th in the FedEx Cup standings.
