World Number One Luke Donald collected another title for his amazing 2011 when his fellow golfers voted him the PGA Tour’s Player of the Year on Tuesday. Donald had already won the PGA Tour’s money title and last week wrapped up the European Tour’s money title. Keegan Bradley won the PGA Tour’s Rookie of the Year voting after a spectacular first campaign that included a win at the PGA Championship.

Donald is the first British golfer to win Player of the Year in the award’s 21-year history, and it’s the fifth time a golfer won the award without winning a major during the year. Donald, who’s in Australia to play the Australian Masters, wasn’t shy about saying he deserved the award. “I think there are just a few things that separated myself from the other players just in terms of the overall consistency,” he explained.

“It’s a great honor to cap off what has been an amazing year for me,” said Donald, who then went on to explain how his achievements have changed the game of golf for the better. “I think in the last 10 or 20 years, the power game has really taken control of golf. But I think I’ve been a little bit of a breath of fresh air knowing that’s not the only way you can be successful. Through a good short game, good putting, managing your game, you can be successful in other ways. I think I’ve proven that quite considerably this year.”

Bradley also wasn’t shy about celebrating his once-in-a-lifetime award. “I’m thrilled to win rookie of the year for all it means,” Bradley said. “It’s an award that you can only win one time in your entire career. You get one chance at it, and it was the main goal of mine to start the year.”
