PLAYER OF THE YEAR

ATLANTA — Tiger Woods wrapped up at least one award as player of the year.

Woods has won the PGA of America’s points-based award for player of the year on the strength of his five PGA Tour victories, the money title and the Vardon Trophy. Adam Scott would have had to win the Tour Championship and the Vardon Trophy for the race to end in a tie.

Woods had 90 points — 10 points for each of his five wins, 20 points each for the money title and Vardon Trophy for lowest adjusted scoring average.

It was the 11th time that Woods won PGA player of the year, and ninth time he won the Vardon.
Woods earlier this month wrapped up the Arnold Palmer Award on the PGA Tour for winning his 10th money title with just over $8.5 million. He also won the Byron Nelson Award for scoring average — similar to the Vardon Trophy with less stringent requirements — for the 10th time.

Still to be determined are PGA Tour awards for player of the year and rookie of the year. Both are a vote of the players, and the electronic ballots were to be returned quickly for a Friday announcement.
