Dustin Johnson Voted 2015-16 PGA Tour Player of the Year

October 11, 2016

Dustin Johnson has been voted the PGA Tour Player of the year for the 2015-16 season.

The 32-year-old will receive the Jack Nicklaus POY award after a career-best season where he achieved three wins (including his first major at the 2016 U.S. Open) and 15 top 10 finishes. Johnson’s 23 under par win at the BMW Championship also set the 72-hole scoring record.

In his 22 starts on Tour in 2015-16, Johnson missed just one cut (the PGA Championship at Baltusrol). And despite finishing runner up to Rory McIlroy in the race to the FedEx Cup, Johnson still walked away the money winner for this season, taking home $9,365,185.

Johnson now has the longest active streak on Tour, with at least one Tour win in nine consecutive seasons.

Johnson was elected by fellow PGA Tour members, who were eligible to vote had they participated in a minimum of 15 Tour-sanctioned money events. He beat out Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Henrik Stenson, Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth for the honor. Johnson was named the PGA of America Player of the Year last month.
