HOUSTON -- Rory McIlroy is the near-unanimous choice as the best male player by the Golf Writers Association of America.

McIlroy previously won player of the year awards from the PGA Tour, European Tour, PGA of America and British-based Association of Golf Writers.

The GWAA said Wednesday that Stacy Lewis was voted best female player with 79 per cent of the vote, while double major winner Roger Chapman won the senior player award with 60 per cent of the vote.

This is the fourth time in the last five years that the GWAA award has gone to a European player.
