For the 58-year old Quigley, the 2005 season was a career year with two victories, five runner-up efforts and a Champions Tour best $2,170,258 in earnings. He racked up 15 Top-10 finishes in 27 starts and finished second in the Charles Schwab Cup race, donating his $500,000 prize to charity.

Quigley, like Woods, will also receive the Arnold Palmer Award. Mark McNulty earned the Byron Nelson Trophy for leading the Champions Tour in scoring average with a 69.41 average.

Gore began the 2005 campaign without much fanfare, but a strong showing in the U.S. Open earned him national attention and his subsequent three consecutive wins on the Nationwide Tour earned him an immediate promotion to the PGA TOUR. His victory shortly thereafter at the 84 LUMBER Classic finished off a dream season that resulted in his selection on the Nationwide Tour.

Sean O'Hair, who won at the John Deere Classic and collected more than $2 million in earnings, was selected as the PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year.

The Champions Tour Rookie of the Year is Jay Haas after he won twice on the Tour and finished 15th on the money list in only 10 starts.

Olin Browne, the winner of the Deutsche Bank Championship, was named the PGA TOUR's Comeback Player of the Year while Peter Jacobsen, a winner of the Ford Senior Players Championship, was the Champions Tour Comeback Player of the Year.
