McIlroy named Player of the Year

World number one Rory McIlroy from Northern Ireland has been named PGA Player of the Year, 2012. He had a very outstanding season in which he won four US PGA titles. Since Tiger Woods won the prestigious award in 1998 as the youngest player, Rory has become the youngest player to win Jack Nicklaus Award since. He is 23 year old only.

McIlroy was expected to win the award as he had quite a few achievements this year. He won US PGA Championship by a record eight strokes, a record held earlier by Jack Nicklaus when he won 1980 US PGA Championship by seven shots. He also won Deutsche Bank Championship, Honda Classic and BMW Championship and the Vardon Trophy for the lowest scoring average. Voting for the award is done by a panel of selected tour players that included Jason Dufner, Brandt Snedeker, Bubba Watson and Woods.
McIlroy has also won the most money for the US PGA and European Tours. US PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem said that McIlroy was the obvious choice for the award. McIlroy was happy and satisfied to end a successful and so far the best season of his career on a high note. He said that getting applause and recognition from colleagues was a nice feeling.
John Huh won the rookie of the year award as he became the youngest player in almost a decade to qualify for the Tour Championship. Previous youngest player to qualify was Sergio Garcia.

Comeback on Cards for Warne

Australia’s most successful and legendary leg spinner Shane Warne’s was sympathetic for his friend and current Australian Captain Michael Clarke after his side lost the test series against SA. Seeing the wayward Australian bowling, Shane Warne has gone to the extent that he has offered his services for the test team. He said that seeing the performance of the bowlers, he really wanted to pick the bowl and go to the field.

  Although the chances seem remote, Warne said that all he was waiting for a serious call from Clarke and he would be out of retirement and play for Ashes tests next season. However he expressed he would want to earn his place in the team by playing and performing well in the domestic season before a Test recall could be considered. Warne said that he was sill very fit to play test cricket even if a test was three weeks away of which he was a part, he would have no problems whatsoever.

Warne said that the challenge for him was not his fitness but his family life and personal commitments as his wife was in other continent at work and he had to travel between Europe and Australia with kids at times. He has 3 kids aged 16, 14 and 12.

Warne will be captaining the Melbourne Stars in this summer’s Big Bash League and has bowled well for the team in their warm up matches. He has got a total of 706 test wickets and was the highest test wicket taker till his retirement, when Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Murralitharan surpassed him and became highest test wicket taker with 800 wickets.
