Dustin Johnson has been voted the 2016 PGA Tour Player of the Year following a season including three wins, 11 top five and 15 top 10 finishes.

The 32-year-old took first place in the US Open, the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and the BMW Championship in this past season.

Johnson, South Carolina, also finished second to Rory McIlroy in the FedExCup and won the Arnold Palmer Award by winning the most money during this year’s PGA Tour season.

Since 2008, Johnson has won a PGA Tour event every year making a run of nine consecutive seasons – the longest run currently active on the PGA Tour.

Tim Finchem, PGA Tour Commissioner, said: “On behalf of the PGA Tour, my congratulations to Dustin Johnson for his outstanding play on big stages during the 2015-2016 season.

“His hard work on the golf course and in the gym paid off with the finest season of his career.”

Johnson was voted for by his fellow PGA Tour members, who became eligible to vote by playing in at least 15 official money events of the 2015-2016 season.
