McIlroy voted PGA Tour Player of the Year


World number one Rory McIlroy has been voted the PGA Tour player of the year for a second time.

After a poor 2013 the 25-year-old Northern Irishman enjoyed an outstanding season that included two majors.

He won his first Open Championship at Hoylake in July – followed that up with victory at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational before clinching a second US PGA title at Valhalla.

Last weekend he played a crucial role in helping Europe beat the USA and retain the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.

He’s had 12 top-10 results and finished no worse than 25th from 17 starts.

He first won the award – voted for by Tour members – in 2012 and joins Tiger Woods, Greg Norman and Nick Price as the only multiple winners of the Jack Nicklaus Award since it began in 1990.
