On Thursday, World Number One Luke Donald was named the European Tour’s Player of the Year, two days after he was named the PGA Tour’s Player of the Year. Last week, Donald became the first golfer ever to officially top both tour’s money lists, so it’s hardly a shock that he was voted Player of the Year for both tours, but he still has never won a major.

Donald won four events in 2011, the WGC-Accenture Match Play, the Scottish Open, the BMW PGA Championship, and the Disney Classic. The win at the BMW PGA gave him the No. 1 ranking, and the win at the Disney Classic was one he had to have to win the PGA Tour money title in the final event of the season. Perhaps more impressive than the four wins was Donald’s overall consistency finishing in the top 10 in 20 of the 26 events he played in worldwide in 2011.

“It was good to see all the hard work I have put in coming to fruition,” said Donald. “I was delighted with my game this year and it is rewarding to feel that, sometimes, consistency does pay off. Everyone dreams of having a year like this and I am very excited and feel fortunate that it happened to me.”

The European Tour player of the year award was just one more recognition that Donald seems to savor. “To have the accolade of European Tour Golfer of the Year means an awful lot to me and I will certainly look back on this year with a lot of fond memories,” Donald said. “It is always nice to be appreciated, especially from the people in the sport who know the game inside out. They have recognized what I have done this year and it is very gratifying to have that validation.”
