Rory McIlroy described it as a “great feeling” to win The Race to Dubai for the second time in three years.
The Northern Irishman had already been confirmed as European Number One before his runner-up finish at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai courtesy of a remarkable summer.
Having won The European Tour’s flagship BMW PGA Championship in May, McIlroy went on to add The Open Championship and US PGA Championship either side of a first World Golf Championships victory at the Bridgestone Invitational.
“It's a great feeling to know that I've played the best golf throughout the season of any of the guys for the second time in three years, it's really nice,” said McIlroy, who finished two shots behind Henrik Stenson at Jumeirah Golf Estates.
