Lehman named Champions Tour PoY
Wednesday, December 14, 2011
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — Tom Lehman now has won player of the year at every stage of his career.
Lehman has been voted the Champions Tour player of the year after a season in which he won three times and won the Charles Schwab Cup. Lehman also won the money list, the only Champions Tour player to surpass $2 million.
Two decades ago, Lehman was player of the year on what then was called the Hogan Tour. He was voted player of the year on the PGA Tour in 1996 when he won the money list and two tournaments, including the British Open for his lone major.
Lehman said Wednesday this award means as much as the other two because he set a goal to become the first player to win all three.
