Tiger Woods named"Sportsman of the Year"

Tiger Woods is Sports Illustrated's ''Sportsman of the Year'' -- the first two-time recipient in the 46-year history of the award.

Woods completed a career grand slam and won three of golf's four major championships in 2000. He also received the Sports Illustrated honor in 1996 after making a spectacular transition from amateur golf to the PGA Tour.

It marked the sixth time a golfer has received the award. Before Woods in 1996, the last golfer to receive the award was Jack Nicklaus in 1978.
