Young Named PGA’s Top Rookie

Cameron Young fell just short of winning some PGA Tour events, but the Fordham Prep graduate did more than enough to capture the 2021-2022 PGA Tour’s Rookie of the Year honor.

“I just think it’s a very special one historically, given Arnold Palmer’s contributions to our game and the list of names that have been able to take this home is very cool, and I’m very thankful to be a part of it,” said Young of winning the Arnold Palmer Award as the tour’s top rookie in an interview with the Golf Channel.

Young completed the 2021-2022 season with five second-place finishes and two third-place finishes in 25 events.

In September, Young helped Team USA defeat the International team at the Presidents Cup.

PGA golfers will be competing in the Butterfield Bermuda Championship, starting Thursday at Port Royal Golf Course in Bermuda.

Velazquez Out for Season

Fordham Prep graduate Andrew Velazquez played his final game of the 2022 season after the Los Angeles Angels placed the shortstop on the 60-day injured list on Saturday.

Velazquez suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee on Tuesday and was originally placed on the 10-day injured list. The Angels placed him on the 60-day injured list to create a spot on the 40-man roster.

The 28 year old finished the season with a .196 batting average, nine home runs, 28 RBI, 37 runs scored and 17 stolen bases. He had a .979 fielding percentage.

The Angels claimed Velazquez off waivers from the New York Yankees following the 2021 season and started the 2022 season with the Salt Lake Bees, the Class AAA affiliate of the Angels. Velazquez was originally drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the seventh round of the 2012 Major League Baseball Draft.
