Tiger Woods named PGA Tour player of the Year

September 27, 2013 19:35 IST

Tiger WoodsTiger Woods was named the PGA Tour's Player of the Year for a record 11th time on Friday, with fellow-American Jordan Spieth voted rookie of the year.

Both awards were determined by members, with PGA Tour members who played in at least 12 official money events in 2013 eligible to vote.

"Tiger's five wins came against some of the strongest fields in golf including the Players and two World Golf Championships while Jordan's rookie season was historic in terms of his accomplishments for a player just 20 years old," said PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem.

"The member vote reflects the respect their peers have for both players."
