In a shocking development, last night, Rory McIlroy was named the PGA Tour Player of the Year for the 2018-2019 season. Yes, it’s true. The 30-year-old Irishman, captured the honour over the Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient and true legend, Tiger Woods, - current world number one ranked Brooks Koepka, - San Diego, California native, Alexander Victor Schauffele, who has had several spectacular PGA Tour achievements in his short career, - and the fifth-longest streak record holder as world number one, Dustin Hunter Johnson (DJ).
The PGA Tour offers a number of player awards, and the PGA Tour Player of the Year has to be among the most satisfying. This, because it comes directly from fellow golfers. The award is voted on by PGA Tour members who played in at least 15 FedEx Cup events during the 2018-2019 season. Yea, they seemingly preferred McIlroy's uniformity.
The FedEx Cup winner has been named PGA Tour Player of the Year three times now. He was also titled PGA Tour Player of the Year in 2012 and 2014. Looks like he was fully committed to the PGA Tour the just-ended season. Because he led the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained, Total SG, off the tee SG, Tee to green, and Stroke Average.
