Tiger Woods Is Back on Top

It wasn’t too long ago that some people said Tiger Woods wouldn’t win again on the PGA Tour, or win much. Woods is certainly back to winning, including five times in 2013, propelling him to his 11th player of the year award (both PGA Tour and PGA of America). The majors, however, are still an open question.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Tiger Woods, a five-time winner on the PGA Tour this year, has captured his 11th PGA of America Player of the Year Award and ninth Vardon Trophy, The PGA of America’s premier season-ending awards for excellence by a Tour professional. It was the first time since 2009 that Woods earned both PGA of America awards.

Completing his 16th full season as a PGA Tour professional, Woods won The Players Championship and two World Golf Championships among his five victories; finished as the No. 1 money leader; and won the Vardon Trophy by posting the lowest adjusted season scoring average (68.98).

Woods collected 100 overall points, while Masters Champion Adam Scott was next with 64. Henrik Stenson, winner of the Tour Championship and FedExCup, shared third at 54 points, along with U.S. Open Champion Justin Rose and Open Champion Phil Mickelson.

  1. Well maybe ,he is not the player he once was…

    And I said maybe cuz the way he finished the golf season for the # 1 player was pathetic.

    Those early victories, cemented the #1 player ranking. The way he ended the year, he was not the #1 player.

    This may sound absurd but any player in the top 5 list, head to head with Tiger will come out on top.
