Tiger is in the mix due to winning 5 or 6 times. Stricker has been GREAT in playoffs. He has something like 3600 points in first 2 events and next closes is 2300. Tiger has 1200 or so in the events.
That said, if one of the Major Champions from this year wins FED EX CUP, then I think they win player of the year. FED EX CUP and Major is more than Tigers 5/6 wins.
Perry had a great year last year, but nothing special this year. Left had a better year and he took off most of hit. He has won twice with one being WGCA event.
