Tiger Woods locks down Money List title

If the Player of The Year award was decided on earnings, Tiger Woods would be a shoe-in for the title.

The World No1's top ten finish at the BMW Championship helped the the 37-year-old's bank account in 2013 to a cool $8,407,839.

With Matt Kuchar and Phil Mickelson almost $3 million off that figure with one event left to play, it means Woods is assured of winning the Arnold Palmer Award for leading the money list. He'll also pick up the Vardon Trophy for the lowest scoring average, which a total that currently stands at 68.87.

However, when it comes the player of the year award it's not yet set in stone. At this year's majors Tiger has failed to deliver the goods unlike Mickelson (Open Championship) and Adam Scott (US Masters), who sit just below Woods in the rankings.

The major championships of those closest to him in performances in 2013, could tip the balance in the voting for player of the year. But should he win the Tour Championship, that could well be enough to swing voters back Tiger's way.

"Winning five times this year has been pretty good," said Woods.

"Like the other four guys in the top five we control our destiny."

He added: "I think I've had a good run here. I've won twice and finished second four times. That's not too bad over the course of my career here."

Along with Mickelson and Scott, Zach Johnson, Henrik Stenson and Matt Kuchar could all secure the FedEx Cup with victory at East Lake.

However, should the 37-year-old Woods miss out, he is still content on having one of his most consistent seasons since his well advertised fall from grace in 2009.

"I think so. I won some big events this year - two World Golf Championships, a Players (Championship) and Jack (Nicklaus) and Arnold's (Palmer) tournament. I think that's been a pretty good year.

"I think that I'm excited the way I've put together my last couple of years and coming off the injuries, a lot of people thought I would never win again, and here we are with some more wins."
