Is anyone really surprised that Rory McIlroy has been named 2014 Player of the Year on the PGA tour? This is the second time in three years he has taken the award. He took over the #1 World Ranking this past summer and was voted player of the year by his peers on the Tour.
This season also saw him take home two majors (PGA and The Open), a WGC and recently a Ryder Cup team victory. He was the leading money winner at just over $8million and finished 3rd in the Fed Ex Cup. Of the 17 events he played this year, he had 12 TOP-10 finishes and never came in worse than 25th.
