*Tiger Woods has won the 2013 PGA Tour Player of the Year Award, capping a season that saw him win five of the 16 tournaments he played this season and finish in the top 10 in three others.

His wins included the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Farmers Insurance Open, Players Championship, Cadillac Championship and Bridgestone Invitational.

Speaking on a conference call after being named Player of the Year, Woods said he was thrilled with the honor.

“Fantastic year all around, also incredible feeling to be voted on by your peers … very humbling.”

He also noted that his most significant win of the season was at the Players Championship.

“To win against that quality of a field is a great feeling.”

This is the 11th time Woods has won the award but the first since 2009 when he won six times in 17 starts.

Eleven is by far the most PGA Tour Player of the Year Awards won by a single golfer. Second most is two by both Fred Couples and Nick Price. The award has been given out since 1990.
