Woods still set to earn Player of the Year award despite disappointing finish

6:14 pm on 23 September 2013

World number one Tiger Woods ended his PGA Tour campaign for the year with an unimpressive tie for 22nd but, in all likelihood, will earn Player of the Year honours which are to be announced late next week.

Though he hasn't been at his best in the last three FedExCup playoff events, he has had five wins on the U.S. circuit this season, three more than anyone else.

His main challengers for that accolade are Masters champion Adam Scott and British Open winner Phil Mickelson, but Woods is widely expected to secure the players' vote for an 11th time.

Woods hasn't won a major title since the 2008 U.S. Open.
