This should come as a surprise to nobody.  23 year old, #1 player in the world Rory McIlory has won the PGA of America’s Player of the Year.  Rory won FOUR times in 2012 in 16 events, including the record-setting victory at the PGA Championship where he lapped the field.

Rory also won the Vardon Trophy, the award for lowest scoring average on Tour.

“Honoured to win The PGA of America player of the year award along with the Vardon Trophy, it’s fantastic to see my name on a list of winners alongside some of the greats of the game.” ~Rory McIlory via Facebook

For good measure, Rory has won the money titles on both the PGA Tour and European Tour.  He’s the 2nd player to ever do that.  Luke Donald became the first last year.  The money title award is referred to as the Arnold Palmer Award.

More Awards Soon

Next award for Rory: PGA Tour player of the Year.  Mark it down. It is a lock.
