The 30-year-old beat world No 1 Brooks Koepka to the title after registering three victories during an impressive 2019, following wins at the Players Championship and RBC Canadian Open by claiming the season-ending Tour Championship.

McIlroy registered 14 top-10s from his 19 starts during the 2018-19 season and was voted for the award by PGA Tour members, having previously won the accolade in 2012 and 2014.

Koepka, who also registered three wins during the season, won the Player of the Year award in 2018

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said: “While there are a number of honours one can receive in this game, PGA Tour Player of the Year has to be among the most satisfying as it comes directly from his peers.

“Rory’s season was a model of consistency punctuated by milestone victories and ultimately the FedExCup in Atlanta.”
