Tiger Woods was voted PGA Tour player of the year Wednesday by the Golf Writers Association of America, the fourth consecutive year he has won the award.

Annika Sorenstam won the LPGA Tour player of the year for the second straight year, while Hale Irwin won the award for the Senior PGA Tour.

Woods won six tournaments worldwide, including his second straight Masters and the U.S. Open to become the first player in 30 years to win the first two legs of the Grand Slam. He won the PGA Tour money list and scoring title for the fourth straight year.

Sorenstam had one of the best seasons in women's golf in nearly 40 years, winning 13 times around the world. She set or tied 20 records, including the season scoring average.

Irwin, 57, won four times and became the first player on the Senior Tour to earn more than $3 million in one year.
