Koepka won a major. McIlroy won the Players Championship and the Fed Ex Cup.

Tough choice. The positive about the PGA, today, is that there are so many great players... any of whom can find the "magic". McIlroy and Koepka both had super years. If I had to choose one or the other as having the "better" year, it would probably be McIlroy.
Koepka had such a fantastic 2018 season. Off season predictions had him unbeatable for 2019. He was going to ride in on his white horse and take every major... every tournament. He was the man to beat. And... he had success. Just not the pinnacle of success arm-chair prognosticators promised.
McIlroy, OTOH, has disappointed his fans over and over. How many tournaments has Rory been predicted to finish in the top five… or win... only to let his mind get in the way. It was good to see him enjoy a good year, capped by needing a fleet of armored trucks to haul the winnings from this past week to the bank.

Played 10% less golf and won 60% more money?

Rory definitely had a better year.
Yeah but the FedEx Cup accounts for 62% of his winnings.

Money aside, I'd say statistically Rory had the better year. The Players is basically a major and the FedEx Cup is a grind. Rory, but not by much.

It seemed like Koepka was the word on our lips for most of the season till the final round of the FedEx Cup. I’d say Koepka.
