The PGA Tour will not submit any candidates for this year’s comeback player of the year award, according to the Associated Press.

"We just thought it originally was an award that focused on a player who had an unusual injury, an injury that was career-threatening, and he comes back from it," Finchem told the AP. "And that morphed into having three or four players on the ballot that had some minor situations occur. We were asking players to decide who should be the bigger comeback."
This year will mark the second time in three seasons that no comeback player of the year award will be given. In 2009 the PGA Tour officials made the same decision on the nomination process as they did this year. In 2010, Stuart Appleby was given the award.
