McIlroy wins twin gongs
Rory McIlroy has been named the 2013-14 PGA of America Player of the Year and received the Vardon Trophy for lowest scoring average on Tour.
The 25-year-old Ulsterman had a remarkable year on the PGA Tour, winning two major titles and regaining the world number one ranking in the process.
It also marks the second time in three seasons that the four-time major winner won both awards.
He won consecutive major titles at the Open and PGA Championships, coupled with his maiden World Golf Championship title at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in what was a remarkable couple of weeks in July and August.
He also finished on top of the PGA Tour’s money list.
Masters winner Bubba Watson was in second place, while US Open winner Martin Kaymer was third.
With regards to the Vardon Trophy, he posted an adjusted average of 68.82 through 66 complete rounds, marginally better than Sergio Garcia (68.95), who completed five fewer rounds.
McIlroy is also the favourite to win the PGA Tour Player of the Year, which will be announced before the start of the Tour’s 2014-15 season-opening Frys.com Open on October 9.
