Luke Donald has been named the 2011 PGA Tour Player of the Year, becoming the first Briton to win the golf award since it started in 1990.

The award, decided by votes from PGA Tour players, was announced just two days after the current world number one became the first player to top the money-lists on both the European and U.S. Tours.

American Keegan Bradley, who won this year's PGA Championship in Atlanta, was named the PGA Tour's Rookie of the Year.
