Woods receives Mark H McCormack Award


Tiger Woods was named the recipient of the 2000 Mark H. McCormack Award on Tuesday. The award is presented annually to the player who holds the No. 1 position on the Official World Golf Ranking for the greatest number of weeks. Woods sat atop the rankings all 52 weeks last year.

'To be able to be ranked No. 1 in the world consistently and for a substantial time just goes to show you need to be consistent,' Woods said after his rain-shortened practice round at the Bay Hill Invitational on Tuesday. 'So far in my career I've been able to do that and hopefully I'll be able to continue to do that.'
This is the third straight year Woods has won the award and he seems certain to win it again in 2001. He is currently ranked No.1 with 27.42 points, well ahead of second place Phil Mickelson who has 11.86 points.
The award was created in 1998 to honor the Chairman and CEO of International Management Group, Mark H. McCormack.
