The 26-year-old Northern Irishman successfully defended the Race to Dubai title after winning the season-ending World Tour Championship in Dubai last month. He had two other victories, at the Dubai Desert Classic and the WGC-Cadillac Match Play.

McIlroy says he feels "very proud to have won this prestigious award for the third time."

He says it is "always special, no matter how often, to be recognized this way."

The former top-ranked McIlroy was granted special dispensation to play the European Tour's Final Series. He had not fulfilled the standard membership criteria because of an ankle injury sustained midway through the year.
