I mentioned in my post handicapping the PGA Tour player of the year award race that you could gorge yourself on Tiger Woods stats but the only one that really matters is that he won five times in 16 appearances.

But now let's do some gorging.

Here are my five of the most important Tiger stats from 2013 (outside of wins):

1. March 24 -- If Woods would have quit the season on March 24 he would have led the PGA Tour in wins and finished 11th on the money list.

2. $7,797 -- That was how much money Woods earned per hole this season. Next closest was Henrik Stenson at $5,478 per hole.

3. 2.2 -- That's the stroke difference between Tiger's first round of tournaments and Tiger's last round. For comparison:

Tiger first round -- 68.93
Tour average first round -- 71.42

Tiger final round -- 71.13
Tour average final round -- 71.16

4. $779,600 -- That's how much more money Woods made than Ernie Els, Rory McIlroy, Bubba Watson, Lee Westwood, and Bo Van Pelt....combined.

5. 50 percent -- Incredibly only four golfers had a top 10 percentage better than 40 percent. Justin Rose (41 percent), Henrik Stenson (44 percent), Tiger Woods (50 percent), and Steve Stricker (61 percent).

Maybe this means I need to do my five best Steve Stricker stats on Friday.
