Tiger Woods named PGA Tour Player of the Year... so why is he disappointed?

It's another big year for Tiger Woods.

It was announced today that he has been named the PGA Tour Player of the Year for the 11th time. He won 5 tournaments this season, the most of any player, and finished second in the FedEx Cup. His $8 million in prize money was $2 million more than any other player.

And yet, many people – including Tiger Woods – consider the year a failure.

The reason? No majors. For the fifth consecutive year, Tiger Woods has come up empty-handed at the four major golf tournaments.

He came in 4th at the Masters this year, which scored him a big payday, and yet he missed the green jacket. And in golf, that's a big deal, especially to Tiger.

Woods is currently 2nd on the all-time Majors list, 4 wins behind Jack Nicklaus. At the beginning of his career it seemed a sure bet he would take that top spot.But now, who knows.

Tiger's currently 1st or 2nd on most of the PGA's All-Time lists and he's won $100 million over his career, more money playing golf than anyone in history.

But the record of records might be out of his grasp. Is being #1 in money better than #1 in the record books, or not? How do YOU define success: majors or money? Let us know on Twitter.
