World No 1 Scottie Scheffler was voted PGA Tour Player of the Year on Saturday, organisers said, beating the likes of Rory McIlroy and Cameron Smith to the award.

American Scheffler, 26, won his maiden major at the Masters this year in addition to four other Tour victories, the most for any player during the 2021-22 season.

The award was voted for by fellow PGA Tour members, with Scheffler, who was also Rookie of the Year in 2020, getting 89 per cent of the votes.

Northern Ireland’s McIlroy also enjoyed a stellar season, winning his third FedEx Cup title.
