  Garcia: Year of my career Sergio Garcia is looking to end the "year of his career" on a high as he makes his debut at the Australian PGA Championship.

Spain’s Sergio Garcia , the reigning Masters Champion, has been named the Hilton European Tour Golfer of the Year for 2017, receiving the prestigious annual award for the first time.

Sergio García Fernández (pronounced [ˈseɾxjo ɣaɾˈθi.a feɾˈnandeθ]; born 9 January 1980) is a Spanish professional golfer who plays on both the PGA Tour and the European Tour .

And his performances have earned him the Golfer of the Year accolade for the first time.

"This is an amazing honour," he told the European Tour website.

"I think both on and off the golf course it has been a unique and unbelievable year, and one that I will definitely remember my whole life.

"I am so happy to receive this award, and to be named the European Tour Golfer of the Year, against the calibre of players that were in contention is incredible. Tommy [Fleetwood], Justin [Rose], Tyrrell [Hatton] and Jon [Rahm] are all amazing players, and all had unbelievable years themselves.

"With the five of us filling the top five places in the Race to Dubai, it shows the real strength of the European Tour, and European players in particular, and hopefully we will keep that going for next September [at the Ryder Cup] in Paris."
