The 37-year-old Swede finished on top of both money lists on the European and PGA Tours, after winning the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai and The Race to Dubai on the European circuit and the Tour Championship and FedExCup with the PGA.

"It is a big honour to be voted Race to Dubai golfer of the year. It just reflects the stellar year I have had. You can call it a dream season, the year of my life, whatever you want," Stenson said, who began the year ranked outside of the top 50 but will head into 2014 as the world No. 3, with Tiger Woods and Masters champion Adam Scott ahead of him.

"It has been an unbelievable year and I'm delighted to win the award especially as I'm the first Swede to do so.

"You look at the past winners of the award and most of the greats of European golf are on there which just adds to the prestige of winning it."
