Dustin Johnson Voted 2015-16 PGA Tour Player of the Year

Dustin Johnson has been named the PGA Tour's player of the year after a sensational 2015-16 season in which he celebrated his breakthrough victory in a major championship.

PGA TOUR members who played in at least 15 official money events this past season were eligible to vote.

Johnson, 32, is a former resident of Myrtle Beach and played collegiality at Coastal Carolina University.

Johnson, who admitted he did not vote for himself and abstained from voting at all on the award, won three events in the same season for the first time in his career in 2016.

"I don't even know if I ever dreamed this would be happening", said Johnson on Tuesday.

Johnson, 32, also earned the Arnold Palmer Award as the Tour's leading money victor (US$9.4 million or S$13 million) and claimed the Byron Nelson Award for adjusted scoring average (69.172), the PGA Tour said in a statement.

Johnson swept the top honors of the circuit, all bearing the names of his greatest golfers.

Johnson's season saw him win the US Open as well as the lucrative World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and BMW Championship.

The award is voted on by the Tour's membership.

Johnson's been playing in the PGA Tour full-time for nine seasons, but his winnings in 2016 alone account for an astounding 23 percent of his career earnings - and if it wasn't for a shaky final round at the Tour Championship at East Lake and some late-Sunday heroics from Rory McIlroy, Johnson would be $10 million richer.

"I've got a lot of confidence in the game right now".
