Also, nine year-old Charley Hull from Burton Latimer won a Special Achievement Award.
This year she beat over 20,000 competitors to win the Ladies Amateur Championship at Turnberry, despite the wind blowing her over on the course twice.
She's now qualified for the Ladies’ Open.
Shaun Murphy made snooker history last season. He became the first qualifier to win the sport's biggest prize – the Embassy World Championship - since Terry Griffiths in 1979 and the lowest ranked player to take the title; all at the age of 22.

Speaking after winning the award, Shaun said, “Every time you win an award is absolutely amazing.
“It’s taken 15 years of hard work to get here, but each one of these awards represents some of that time grafting away.”
Murphy now lives in Rotherham with his wife but still has close ties to Northamptonshire.
County swimmer Caitlin McClatchy, who is based in Brixworth but trains in Loughborough, was also nominated for an award but failed to win.
