The South Korean needed just nine minutes to complete his brace and take his tally to four for the season, courtesy of a dipping 30-yard half-volley that left the back-tracking Thorsten Kirschbaum with no hope whatsoever in the Stuttgart goal.
Son took 60 per cent of the poll at the final count, with FC Bayern München's Mario Götze a distant second with 17 per cent, despite matching an exquisite first touch with an equally well-executed curling finish in his side's 6-0 rout of SV Werder Bremen at the Allianz Arena.
Down in third (12 per cent), Borussia Dortmund loanee Marvin Ducksch showed his parent club what they're missing out on with a game-changing goal in the second half of SC Paderborn's 3-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt. Leverkusen's Karim Bellarabi (seven per cent) and 1. FSV Mainz summer signing Jairo Sampeiro (four per cent) completed the ballot.
