ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Georgia — Stephan Jaeger was named the 2020-21 Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year at the PGA TOUR’s RSM Classic. Jaeger accepted the Jack Nicklaus Trophy, given annually to the Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year, alongside Greyson Sigg, who was voted the 2020-21 Korn Ferry Tour Rookie of the Year.
In a vote of his peers, Jaeger outpaced fellow Player of the Year nominees Mito Pereira, Will Zalatoris, and Sigg. Awarded for only the third season, the Korn Ferry Tour Rookie of the Year honor was given to Sigg, who finished ahead of the only other nominee, Cameron Young.
This is the first time the Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year awards went to different players, as Sungjae Im (2018) and Scottie Scheffler (2019) swept both awards each of the last two seasons.
