For some odd reason; sports fans love to hate Tiger Woods.
Perhaps its his well-documented unfaithfulness or Woods’ cheating ways on the course, but golf fans continue to bash Tiger like he’s the worst human being alive. Well, the success for Woods keeps on coming despite the haters, and another trophy landed in Tiger’s arms on Friday. For the 11th time in his career, Woods was named the PGA Tour Player of the Year for 2013.
For those of you keeping score at home: the trophy came into existence in 1990 and only two golfers have won the award more than once — Fred Couples (2) and Nick Price (2).
To say that Woods has dominated this season would be an overstatement, yet the best golfer in the world did have a rather successful season. In 16 tournaments, Tiger managed to win 5 events and placed 10th or better in three others. Sure, he didn’t win a major, but Woods was hardly a disappointment and his statistics will tell you that much.
