US awards for Chapman, McIlroy
Last updated: 19th December 2012
It's been a good year for Rory McIlroy and Roger Chapman, and the Golf Writers Association of America has recognised it.
McIlroy was voted as the Player of the Year by the American scribes, while Chapman was voted Senior Player of the Year.
World number three Stacy Lewis was also named Women's Player of the Year.
The awards for McIlroy and Chapman come just days after the former was named European Tour Golfer of the Year and the latter was given honorary life membership of the European circuit for his surprise back-to-back major wins in the States.
McIlroy received 190 of the 194 votes in the GWAA poll, three going to FedEx Cup winner Brandt Snedeker and one to Tiger Woods, while Chapman had 60 per cent support in the senior ballot and American Lewis almost 79% in the women's category.
The trio will be formally honoured at the GWAA annual awards dinner in Augusta on the eve of next year's Masters.
