  • World number 10 Bryson De Chambeau is the highest-ranked player in the3 field for the US PGA Tour's season-opening tournament at The Greenbrier

The four-time major champion's other victory came in his RBC Canadian Open debut, where he set a tournament record and won by seven shots - the largest winning margin of the season.

After playing exclusively in the United States until July, skipping the Irish Open at Lahinch, McIlroy racked up 14 top-10 finishes in the USA and vowed to repeat his US-based schedule in 2020 before admitting that with a May 28-31 date likely for the Irish Open in 2020, he'd "definitely" play if such a move is confirmed. "I think it says a lot about what I've put into this year and some of the decisions I made starting off the year".

McIlroy has been named the 2019 PGA Tour Player of the Year after a season highlighted by three wins, including the Players Championship and the Tour Championship, culminating in a $15 million payday as the FedEx Cup champion.

"Players don't just feel that four weeks a year is important", said McIlroy.

"It's more than that".

"I think that's a huge vote of confidence from the players that we play for more than just, you know, maybe what the narrative suggests".

"Every year is different".

That saw the Holywood native join Tiger Woods and Henrik Stenson as only the third player to win The Players, a major, the FedExCup and a World Golf Championships event.

If you value majors exclusively, Koepka is the obvious victor. Im was the only rookie to advance to the Tour Championship and finished tied for 19th in the FedExCup standings.

Along with a second straight PGA Championship title, Koepka also won the C.J. Cup and WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational.

As it turns out, major championships aren't the only thing that matters. Koepka also finished T-2 at the Masters, solo second at the U.S. Open and T-4 at the British Open. It essentially comes down to how much you value major championships. Only Woods (12 in 2000) had more in majors in a single season.

The Tour also announced on Wednesday that 21-year-old South Korean Sungjae Im was voted the 2019 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year. He had 16 top-25s and seven top-10s in 35 events.
