Call it a Comeback shouting it from the rooftops
In a vote of tour members, he bested India's Arjun Atwal and U.S. veteran Rocco Mediate for the award, granted annually to a player who has overcome some sort of obstacle, personally or professionally. Appleby overcame what, exactly? Apathy?
After struggling through an uncharacteristically bad 2009 season, the popular Australian was outside the top 125 in earnings coming down the stretch when he told the Golf Channel that he would be skipping the season finale at Disney World and heading to Australia instead...
Rather than try to salvage his season in credible fashion, Appleby instead elected to put the arm on tournaments for one of their limited sponsor exemptions in 2010. He eventually won the first-year Greenbrier event, shooting 59 in the final round, a creditable achievement, to be sure...
Continuing its ridiculous policy, the PGA Tour did not release the voting totals of any of its peer-ballot awards from 2010. To me, the guy who should have won -- and he wasn't even on the ballot -- is Matt Kuchar, who led the tour in earnings and scoring average, then made the Ryder Cup team, just four years removed from being sent down to the Nationwide Tour for more seasoning.
