It’s the third time the Northern Irishman had taken the Jack Nicklaus Award, having scooped the honour in 2012 and 2014. The winner was voted on by all PGA Tour members, who played at least 15 official FedEx Cup events during the 2018-19 season. McIlroy won the FedEx Cup for the second time this year, becoming just the second player – after Tiger Woods – to win the season-long race more than once, and the first to win the Players Championship and the FedEx Cup in the same season. With three wins on the season (the Players, RBC Canadian Open and the Tour Championship), McIlroy matched Brooks Koepka for the most victories on tour.Tags: FedEx CupPGA TourRory McIlroylast_img read more
