Rory McIlroy: Another Player of the Year award
Rory McIlroy has added yet another award to his 2012 collection after he was named Player of the Year by the Golf Writers Association of America.
The world No 1 was a runaway winner in the GWAA poll, receiving 190 of the 194 votes with three going to FedEx Cup champion Brandt Snedeker and one to Tiger Woods.
McIlroy's latest accolade comes just 24 hours after being named European Tour Golfer of the Year, while he has already collected the PGA Tour Player of the Year honour.
England's Roger Chapman was also honoured by the GWAA for his back-to-back major wins on the Champions Tour last season.
Chapman picked up the seniors award after polling 60% of the vote, while Stacy Lewis won the women's Player of the Year with 79%.
All three trio will be formally honoured at the GWAA annual awards dinner in Augusta on the eve of next year's Masters.
