What men's golf had this year was three great years by three players. What makes McIlroy stand out is winning the points title on two tours. And mostly it's for his strong voice of support for the PGA Tour in its fight with LIV Golf. Read moreColumn: 3 great years in golf, 2 of them already forgotten
