The 14-time Major winning American star won five of his first 11 events- the Farmers Insurance Open, the WGC-Cadillac Championship, the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the Players Championship and the WGC-Bridgestone- in a spectacular start to the year.
According to Sport24, both Woods' and Spieth's awards were determined by votes cast by tour members who played in at least 12 official money events in 2013.
Stating that the member vote reflects the respect their peers have for both players, PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem stated that Woods' wins came against some of the strongest fields in golf including the Players and two World Golf Championships, while Spieth's season was historic in terms of his achievements as he is just 20 years old.
According to Woods, winning the award remained a special achievement for him, especially as he has battled back from knee and back ailments to thrive once again on the tour.
The report mentioned that Spieth began the year with no PGA Tour status yet entered 23 events and won the John Deere Classic, where at 19 years, 11 months and 18 days, he became the youngest player to win on the tour since 1931. (ANI )
