It turned out to be his biggest asset when Golf Manitoba announced Monday night the 20-year-old native of Glenboro is the 2012 Golfer of the Year.

"It’s fantastic," Wytinck said after Monday night’s annual award dinner and ceremony at Glendale Golf and Country Club. "It’s extremely humbling. It was an honour to just be nominated with all the great players who had great seasons."

Wytinck, the first player-of-the-year winner from western Manitoba since the award’s inception in 1975, got the nod over finalists Charlie Boyechko of Southwood, five-time former player of the year Garth Collings of Breezy Bend and Jenna Roadley of Glendale.
