The young Scot, who is playing in this week’s DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, landed the November award with 48 per cent of the vote after his success in the Aphrodite Hills Cyprus Showdown.

In an innovative new format, MacIntyre came through the two separate cut marks before shooting a final-round seven-under-par 64 to win by a single stroke.
