JERSEY CITY, N.J. – It's hard to believe that anyone wouldn't want Tiger Woods' 2013 season. His five wins are three clear of his next closest competitor on Tour (Phil Mickelson, Matt Kuchar and Brandt Snedeker all have two).
If taken to a vote today, the sentiment 'round the grounds at The Barclays is that Woods would win Player of the Year honors, hands down.
But Adam Scott thinks Woods wouldn't want Woods' season. That is, if he could swap with Scott.
'He may want mine,' Scott said with a smile. 'I mean, (career major win) No. 15 is proving to be difficult for him, so that would have given him that.'
Scott won the Masters this year to secure his first major title. That also gave Australia its first-ever green jacket.
Turns out it's not unsubstantiated speculation on Scott's part. When asked which is the better season, one with five titles but no majors or one with just one major, Woods deadpanned, 'The major.'
Whose season would Scott rather have?
'I'd rather have mine.'
On whose 2013 they'd rather have, Woods and Scott can agree.
