Jon Rahm scoops DP World Tour Player of the Year award

Jon Rahm says winning the DP World Tour Player of the Year award is a 'huge honour'. 

The Spaniard was voted as top player in 2021 by his fellow professionals, claiming the award named after Seve Ballesteros.

It's his second time to be voted as Player of the Year.

Rahm enjoyed a stellar year last year, winning his first major championship after prevailing at the US Open at Torrey Pines.

He finished in the top ten of the three other majors.

Rahm spent a total of 27 weeks at World Number One - a position he currently occupies - and was Europe's leading points scorer at the Ryder Cup.

“Winning anything with Seve’s name on it is a huge honour for me, as is the fact that this is voted for by the players of the DP World Tour," Rahm said.

“It is very unique to be recognised by your peers like this.

"It is a true honour to be able to win this award for a second time and hopefully I can continue to make the DP World Tour proud.”

The Chief Executive of the European Tour group, Keith Pelley, hailed his achievements.

“In the first year of this being the Tour’s combined Player of the Year award named in honour of one Spanish great, it is fitting the winner is another incredible Spaniard who is creating his own remarkable legacy on the global stage.

“Jon’s form throughout 2021 was simply outstanding and his victory at the U.S. Open, in front of his family, was undoubtedly a highlight that will live long in the memory.

"That cemented his place among the pantheon of Europe’s all-time leading players and his contribution in the colours of Europe at the Ryder Cup also demonstrated what an extraordinary competitor he is.”

Rahm is among the entrants for this week's Genesis Invitational on the PGA Tour.

Rory McIlroy is also in the field for the tournament in California, which begins tomorrow.
