McIlroy claims writers award
Last updated: 10th December 2012
World number one Rory McIlroy has won the 2012 European Golf Writers Trophy, capping off an excellent year during which he topped the money lists on both the USPGA and European Tours, as well as winning his second career major title.
The 23-year-old Ulsterman won the US PGA Championship this year, adding to the US Open crown he claimed in 2011, finished just ahead of the triumphant European Ryder Cup team in the voting.
"Wherever we play the golf writers are there helping to promote our sport and give a voice to golf and therefore I am delighted to win their award," McIlroy in a statement.
"I hope to give them plenty more good things to write about in 2013," the five-time winner in 2012 added.
