Rory McIlroy beat out Brooks Koepka to his third PGA Tour Player of the Year honor.

Voting for the award was open to players who competed in at least 15 official FedEx Cup events during the 2018-19 season.

While the Tour does not release vote totals and announced McIlroy the winner over Koepka, Matt Kuchar and Xander Schauffele, in alphabetical order, it was long considered a two-man race between McIlroy and Koepka. For all of his accomplishments last season, McIlroy did not claim a major title while Koepka won the PGA Championship and remains the top-ranked player in the world.
