European Tour Rookie of the Year Award Winners

This is the list of the European Tour's Rookie of the Year award recipients. The award was first given out in 1960, which predates the founding of the European Tour, but the tour does recognize those awards given out prior to 1972.

The official name of the award is the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year Award. Henry Cotton (1907-1987) is the British golfer who won the Open Championship three times and is a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame.
