Rory McIlroy

Best Player: Rory McIlroy

Duh. McIlroy snapped his nearly two-year winless drought on the PGA Tour in a big way with his victory at the British Open. Three weeks later (after another win at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational), he won the PGA Championship to bring his major title total to four at age 25. It's crazy to think that someone playing in the Tiger Woods era other than Tiger might have a better chance of breaking Jack Nicklaus' major mark of 18, but McIlroy's double dip has at least made him part of that conversation.
