Cazaubon Wins PGA Latinoamérica’s Player Of The Year

Dec. 10, 2015

ORADO, Puerto Rico – After a brilliant season in which he tallied three victories, former North Texas All-American golfer Rodolfo Cazaubón captured the Order of Merit to secure the Roberto De Vicenzo Award as PGA Tour Latinoamérica’s 2015 Player of the Year.

Cazaubón took the lead after his second victory of the season in the Dominican Republic Open last June, and did not lose his lead en route to gaining full status on the Tour in 2016.

The 26-year-old became the only player to win three times in one season since PGA TOUR Latinoamérica was launched in 2012.

Cazauon made 16 starts on PGA Tour Latinoamérica this season along with two starts on the Tour and one on the PGA Tour.

“A step up is a bit more complicated, but I feel I have the game to compete with them, and I was fortunate to play several tournaments,” he said. “I know there are many great players, but competing against them it’s not an impossible task. It’s up to me to work hard and have a good preseason. Luckily the Tour begins with several events in Latin America and I will be playing them just as if I was playing on this Tour,” said Cazaubón, who made his first cut on the PGA Tour just three weeks ago at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

As PGA Tour Latinoamérica’s Order of Merit No. 1, Cazaubón will enjoy full status next season on the Tour.

Cazaubon joins fellow Mean Green alum Carlos Ortiz in winning Player of the Year awards on the PGA Tour. Ortiz was the 2014 Tour Player of the Year, which vaulted him to the PGA Tour full-time in 2015.
