Harrington Gets Tiger’s Player of the Year Vote

THIS FROM WEDNESDAY’S media conference at the Chevron World Challenge:

Q. Did you vote for Paddy?

TIGER WOODS: I did actually.

Q. Why?

TIGER WOODS: He won two (majors).

Q. Is that all it comes down to?

I am very pleased to see this. There were a lot of people who kept picking Tiger, and I'm betting a lot of them picked him just to suck up (media types who want interiews and access to him later on). It's good to know that Tiger can put things into perspective. Although I don't necessarily think it's all about the majors, at least Harrington played a full schedule and was generally healthy for the duration (if you overlook his apparent burnout after the PGA-he didn't do much of anything after that).

Can a player vote for themselves?

LadyGolfer: Yes, I believe so.

I like Harrington especially his work ethic, I wish he was a little more cavalier in is approach. He a business like golfer without the wow factor.
