His average of 19.98 points, 7.46 ahead of closest rival David Duval, is also the largest ever lead held by a world number one.

Woods won 12 events, including the season's final Major, the USPGA, and finished the season with 8 in his last 11 world ranking events.

Colin Montgomerie moved from seventh to third in the rankings list after securing his seventh consecutive Order of Merit title.
