Jim Furyk has been named as the 2010 US Professional Golfers Association Player of the Year.
After going more than two years without a victory, Furyk has had an amazing season winning the FedEx Cup as well as three golf tournaments: the Transitions Championship, the Verizon Heritage and the Tour Championship. He also finished second in the money list with $4,809,622
His three victories are more than any other player on the PGA Tour this season.
Furyk had previously won the PGA of America’s Player of the Year award which is based solely on points, but The US PGA Player of the Year is voted for by the PGA Tour players and this makes it extra special for him.
"This one is very meaningful ... having all my peers and colleagues -- basically the guys I play against week in and week out -- and to have them vote for me as player of the year is what's special," He said.
Rickie Fowler was named PGA Tour Rookie of the Year and Jamie Lovemark Nationwide Tour Player of the Year.
Fowler, 21, is the youngest golfer to win the award since Tiger Woods won in 1996 at the age of 20
