Already No. 1 in the world, Luke Donald now is No. 1 in the eyes of the PGA Tour. Players have voted Donald the PGA Tour player of the year, making him the first British player to win the award since it began in 1990. The vote follows a season in which Donald won twice and captured the money title by shooting 30 on the back nine to win the last tournament of the year. The tour does not disclose the votes or who was the runner-up. Along with his PGA Tour performance, the 34-year-old from England last week became the first player to win the money title on the PGA Tour and European Tour in the same year.
