Congratulations to our six Rolex Southern California PGA members listed below for earning the 2022 Rolex Players of the Year honors. Each year, the Southern California PGA awards the highest points-getter in each division the title of Player of the Year across six divisions. The point total starts at the beginning of each season, and each PGA Professional accumulates points based on finish in each tournament they play in their respective divisions: Section, Women’s, Senior, Super Senior, and APA.
