Player of the Year still up for grabs


NORTON, Mass. – Tiger Woods may have five victories, three more than anyone else this season, but the PGA Tour Player of the Year race remains up for grabs.

That’s the way last year’s winner sees it.

“I’m sure the FedEx Cup is going to have a big effect,” said Padraig Harrington, who became the first European to win the Jack Nicklaus Trophy as Player of the Year. “If any of the guys who have won one of the majors wins the FedEx Cup, surely they’d be Player of the Year. So it can’t be a done deal at this stage. It’s still open. The FedEx Cup has got to have a big impact on it. I think you’ll have to wait and see. Too early to call.”
