ABSTRACT
THERE were lots of raised eyebrows in America last week when Tiger Woods (below) got the vote of his peers as Player of the Year. Why not Adam Scott, the first Australian to win the Masters? Or Justin Rose, the first British winner of the United States Open for 43 years? How about Phil Mickelson for his Open success or Henrik Stenson, the game's renaissance man? All were certainly better storylines than Tiger's, clouded as it was by poor performances in the majors and rules controversies. But from a player's perspective? The majority don't win five times in their careers, let alone the same season, as Tiger did. At the start of the year, it looked like Rory McIlroy had passed him for good and now Woods is streets ahead again as world No 1. True, it wasn't a great year by Tiger's standards. But he's Player of the Year because it was a stunning one by everyone else's.
