Stay on course with this season's pro golf schedules.

The 37-year-old Stenson, who succeeded Rory McIlroy, is the first player from Sweden to win the award.

In addition to his six-shot victory in the season-ending World Tour Championship to clinch the Race to Dubai, Stenson also won the Deutsche Bank Championship and the Tour Championship in Atlanta to seal the FedEx Cup.

Another highlight was his third in the U.S. PGA Championship.

Stenson's most consistent year started at the end of last season, when he won the South African championship.

He said this latest honor reflected ''the stellar year I have had. You can call it a dream season, year of my life, whatever you want.''
