Tiger Woods Says The PGA Tour’s Player Of The Year Race Is Over

On Tuesday morning, Woods answered 26 questions from the assembled media at Ridgefield Country Club. His shortest response came when he was asked if he thought Brooks Koepka, who held off Tiger at the PGA Championship earlier this month, would win the 2017-2018 PGA Tour Player of the Year Award. “You win two majors, you’ve got it. It’s not real complicated,” said Woods, who has won the award a record 11 times, before expanding a bit. “It was very similar to what DD went through in ’98, with Marko winning two major championships, I think that trumps — what, DD won four times that year. I think two majors trumps it.” Woods, long known for his nicknames, was referring to David Duval (“DD”) and Mark O’Meara (“Marko”) with his 1998 example. O’Meara won that year’s Masters and U.S. Open and claimed Player of the Year.
