Rickie Beats out Rory for PGA Tour ROY

My boy Rickie Fowler finally got a piece of hardware for his great play this year. Despite not winning a PGA Tour event and having a great Ryder Cup effort fall slightly short, the 21 year old beat out Rory McIlroy, who had 2 higher finishes in the majors and a PGA Tour win under his belt in 2010. The decision is fairly controversial, and European Lee Westwood was quick to jump all over the Tour for the decision. Check out his twitter rant:

Sorry 140 letters is not going to be enough for this rant! Just seen Ricky Fowler has been given rookie of the year! Yes he’s had a good year but rory mcilroy 3rd in 2 majors and an absolute demolition of the field at quail hollow! Oh yes and on the winning Ryder cup team! Please! Is this yet another case of protectionism by the pga tour or are they so desperate to win something! Wouldn’t have something to do with Rory not joining the tour next year? Maybe the PGA tour just employs the same voting process as FIFA! Come on , fairs fair!
So what do you think? Is The PGA Tour being partial to the American kid here? If so, is that a bad thing?
