Baylor alum Keith Mitchell '10 is among the five nominees for the PGA Tour's Rookie of the Year award.
In his first season on the Tour, Mitchell had four top-10 finishes, placed 67th in the final FedEx Cup standings, and earned slightly more than $1.64 million. Other nominees for the award are Aaron Wise, Austin Cook, Satoshi Kodaira and Joaquin Niemann.
"Achieving what I have has been incredible," Mitchell told the Chattanooga Times Free Press earlier this month, "and it's a great stepping stone for next season."
Mitchell is one of five Baylor alums currently playing professional golf at the highest level. Luke List '03, Harris English '07, and Stephan Jaeger '08 play alongside Mitchell on the PGA Tour and Brooke Pancake '08 is a member of the LPGA Tour.
