Florida - Rory McIlroy is the Vardon Trophy winner and the PGA of America's player of the year for the second time.

McIlroy won the points-based player of the year award on the strength of his two majors at the British Open and PGA Championship.

Winning two majors comes with a 50-point bonus. McIlroy also won the Bridgestone Invitational.

McIlroy had an adjusted scoring average of 68.62 to win the Vardon Trophy over Sergio Garcia (68.95).

The 25-year-old from Northern Ireland also won the PGA's player of the year and the Vardon Trophy in 2012.

The PGA Tour awards a separate award for player of the year based on a vote of the players. Voting for that ends September 25.
