7:33 am on 24 September 2013

The world number one Tiger Woods, Adam Scott and Henrik Stenson are among the five nominees for golf's PGA Tour's Player of the Year.

The British Opener winner Phil Mickelson and fellow American Matt Kuchar, who finished third on the money list, have also been nominated for the honour, known as the Jack Nicklaus Award.

Woods won five times on the tour this year, including the Players Championship and two World Golf Championship events, and finished second in the FedExCup behind Swede Stenson.

Woods won the Arnold Palmer Award as the tour's official money winner after collecting $8.5 million.

While Woods had the most successful year, Stenson ended it in spectacular style with two FedExCup victories including Sunday's TOUR Championship, which secured him the Cup.

Scott won the Masters and the Barclays and finished fourth in the FedExCup after six top-ten finishes in the season.

The winner will be announced later this week.
