1. Tee shots (total driving from combined ranking)
2. Approach shots (GIR ranking)
3. Scrambling (scrambles ranking)
4. Putting (putts per round ranking)
5. Scoring (stroke average)
6. Prize money achieved (average money won per tournament played)
Commenting on his achievement, Oosthuizen said: "Continuous improvement in performance is what we all strive to achieve in this competitive environment. In my experience, paying close attention to the Genworth Player Performance Statistics reveals where improvements in my game can be made. I'm delighted to be the first recipient of this award."
