Last weekend topped off an incredible year for Jordan Spieth where he became the FedEx Cup champion, World Number 1 and $10m richer. 

With five wins this year on the PGA Tour including two majors at the Masters and the US Open, Spieth has managed add to his trophy cabinet by winning the PGA player of the year and the Vardon trophy for the lowest scoring average. 

Not only did he win two majors, but he finished tied fourth at the British Open and runner up at the PGA Championship just behind Australian Jason Day.

Jason Day follows closely behind Spieth in the PGA player of the year after winning his first major during a run of form which saw him win four titles in his last seven events.

Day has always been a good player but has been a player who seems to just make up the numbers, a player who at best will get a top 5 position. But the latter part of this season has seen him produce some unbelievable golf and a dominance in his game that only Spieth and Mcilroy currently possess.

Although Day only had two previous wins on the PGA Tour before the 2015 season, his current form never really came as a shock to the golfing world due to his sheer talent. He has always been one of the 'big hitters' on tour but has never been able to hole the tournament deciding putts, until now. Every part of his game is flawless.

Day finished just behind Spieth in the player of the year rankings with 106 points but was nowhere near the triumphant American who racked up a total of 180. Bubba Watson followed the Australian Jason Day with 52 and Zach Johnson took fourth place with 46 after his British Open win back in July.
