Phillip Price sealed the John Jacobs Trophy with third place in the MCB Tour Championship
Phillip Price won the John Jacobs Trophy for the first time after winning the Staysure Tour Order of Merit at the end of the 2019 season.
De Welshman, 53, managed to reach 12 top 10 finishes and won the Staysure PGA Senior Championship in August.
"Being number one after 19 tournaments is really important to me," said 2002 Ryder Cup Hero Prize.
"I have never won an Order of Merit, I wanted to be number one, so I am very happy."
Price ended last season last season in the season ranking behind double John Jacobs Trophy winner Paul Broadhurst, but his consistency helped him top the list this time.
He withheld the challenge from James Kingston from South Africa during the MCB Tour Championship season finale in Mauritius, finishing in third place to beat the Order of Merit at 2,888 points – 361.6 points ahead of Kingston.
"I had to play pretty well today. I already made a lot of birdies and kept a buffer between myself and the players outside the top 10," Price added.
"It was nice to celebrate and celebrate the last birds. It is always nice to make a nice putt and to hit the sky, knowing that I am number one."
