PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods has been voted PGA Tour player of the year for the 11th time.

The PGA Tour announced the results of player voting Friday morning. It doesn’t release the percentage of votes or who finished second. Woods was on the Jack Nicklaus Award ballot with British Open champion Phil Mickelson, Masters champion Adam Scott, FedEx Cup champion Henrik Stenson and Matt Kuchar.

Jordan Spieth won rookie of the year after starting the season with no status and finishing 10th on the PGA Tour money list.

Woods won five times this year — no one else won more than twice. It’s the third time he has won the award without having won a major. Since the award began in 1990, no one else has won it more than twice.
