Tiger Woods, the world's top-ranked player and winner of five tournaments in 2013, has been voted the PGA Tour Player of the Year for the 11th time.
Another American, 20-year-old Jordan Spieth, won the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year ballot.
The 37-year-old Woods played in 16 tournaments in 2013, winning five of them: the Farmers Insurance Open, the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the Cadillac Championship, The Players Championship and the Bridgestone Invitational.
Woods also led the money list with $8,553,439 in earnings; collected his ninth Vardon Trophy for the lowest scoring average on the PGA Tour (68.98); won the PGA of America Player of the Year award; and has headed the world rankings for the past 27 weeks.
The year was not a total success, however, as Woods was unable to add to his tally of 14 major titles and still is four short of the all-time record held by fellow American Jack Nicklaus.
Spieth, meanwhile, was voted Rookie of the Year thanks in large part to his victory at the John Deere Classic, where he became the youngest player to win a PGA Tour event since 1931.
In voting by PGA Tour players, Woods beat out countrymen Matt Kuchar and Phil Mickelson, Australia's Adam Scott and Sweden's Henrik Stenson for top honors. EFE
