Jerry Kelly Named PGA Tour Champions Rookie of the Year

(Jacksonville, FL) – PGA TOUR Champions has named Jerry Kelly the 2017 Rookie of the Year. Kelly was presented the award Tuesday evening at the PGA TOUR Champions Annual Awards Dinner held at the season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai.

Kelly rose to the top of a celebrated rookie class that included David Toms, Steve Flesch and Steve Stricker. After turning 50 on November 23, 2016, Kelly debuted with a T3 finish at the Chubb Classic. He added three more top-10’s before entering the winner’s circle at the Boeing Classic. That victory started a streak of five straight top-10s, which included another victory at the Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship. He finished the year with the fifth-best scoring average (69.34), thanks in part to his record-setting streak of 16 straight rounds in the 60s, and he was seventh in the final Charles Schwab Cup standings.

Each week more and more Top Professionals from the PGA, LPGA and Champions Tour are choosing to put a Cure Putter into play. This past weekend Jerry Kelly used a Cure CX1 putter to capture yet another win in the 2018 season’s opening event on the PGA tour Champions at the Mitsubiushi Electric Championship at Hualalai, Kailua-Kona, HI.

“We’re thrilled to have Jerry Kelly rolling our CX1 putter and want to congratulate him on being named Rookie of the Year on the PGA Tour Champions,” said Jim McCarthy, CEO of Cure Putters. “Jerry is a great ambassador for our brand. We’re very proud to be associated with him!”
