Northern Ireland's world golf number one Rory McIlroy has been named the PGA Tour's Player of the Year for a second time after a stellar 2014 campaign highlighted by two major victories.
The 25-year-old, who first landed the coveted honour in 2012, won consecutive majors this season at the British Open and PGA Championship, sandwiched around his victory at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
In a vote among his peers, McIlroy won out over Billy Horschel, Martin Kaymer, Jimmy Walker and Bubba Watson.
He was also the tour's leading money winner with 10.6 million dollars after a season in which he finished outside the top-10 only 5 times in his 17 events.
McIlroy's at St Andrews this week for the Dunhill Links Championship which starts tonight.
