Marc Warren is the eleventh Scot to win the award
Scotland's Marc Warren has been named the European Tour's Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year.

The award caps a great season for the Cambuslang-born golfer after he won the Scandinavian Masters in August.

Warren, who becomes the 11th Scot to receive the accolade, said: "Looking at some of the names on the list makes me realise I am in illustrious company.

"Most of the past winners have won tournaments and played in Ryder Cups. I want to achieve that in the future."

Warren claimed his first European Tour title in Sweden following a play-off with Robert Karlsson.

I feel this is a great honour

The 25-year-old said he had achieved his targets for the season.

"I am delighted - it was definitely a massive goal for me at the start of the year," he said.

"A number of great players have not managed to win it and I feel this is a great honour.

"I would have been kicking myself if I hadn't given myself a proper shot at winning this award and I feel relieved to get the nod because it goes to a vote and anything can happen."

Warren beat off competition from England's Ross Fisher and Alejandro Canizares of Spain to win the award.
