Scott Dunlap was named the Champions Tour Rookie of the Year. Dunlap, who resides in Duluth, Georgia, turned 50 on August 16, 2013 and made his Champions Tour debut at the 2013 AT&T Championship, open qualifying for his lone event that year and finishing T15.

After attending the 2013 National Qualifying Tournament, where he earned exempt status for 2014, he finished T5 at the Toshiba Classic in his third start of the year.

His highlight of the season came when he defeated Mark Brooks in a playoff to win the Boeing Classic. Two weeks later, he finished runner-up to fellow rookie Wes Short, Jr. at the Quebec Championship where both he and Short made eagles on the final hole, each shooting 64.

Dunlap followed that with a T2 finish to another rookie, Paul Goydos, at Pacific Links Hawaii Championship. His T6 at the Senior Open Championship was his best result in a major championship.

He capped the season as the leading rookie on the money list in 10th position with $1,100,891 from 22 starts. Other nominees for Rookie of the Year were Woody Austin, Marco Dawson, Paul Goydos, Jeff Maggert and Wes Short, Jr.
