Player of the Year ballot announced Monday

The deadline for PGA Tour players to submit their player-of-the-year ballots is Friday, and the results will be announced Monday.

The leading candidates are Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh, although most players would love to have three victories and the green jacket hanging in Mike Weir's closet.

It should be the closest vote since Mark O'Meara and his two majors trumped David Duval and his four victories, the money title and Vardon Trophy.

How close?

No one will know. The PGA Tour only says who won, not by how many.

``Our intention is not to release the vote total, but to declare the winner,'' PGA Tour spokesman Bob Combs said. ``Just as the Oscars don't tell you who finished second or fifth, neither does the Tour.''

Combs said the Tour might one day announce final tallies -- just not this year.

``We started the balloting process under one set of guidelines, and changing that at this point doesn't seem the appropriate action,'' he said. ``We may well review that for future years.''
