World number one Rory McIlroy has been named the PGA of America's Player of the Year and winner of its Vardon Trophy for the lowest scoring average of the season.

The Holywood golfer won four trophies in the US this year.

He also emulated Ryder Cup team-mate Luke Donald's feat last year of topping the money lists on both sides of the Atlantic.

Tiger Woods was runner-up for Player of the Year, but was ineligible for the Vardon Trophy because of his injury withdrawal during the final round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship in Miami in March.

The PGA Tour has its own Player of the Year award, and McIlroy is also a favourite to pick up the accolade. Members have until the end of the month to vote.
