Tiger Woods left his competitors on the golf course gasping for air this year with seven victories in only 16 tournaments, including four wins in his last five events. His scoring average of 67.8 was 1.5 strokes better than the second-place finisher, Ernie Els. For perspective on how big a gap that is on the PGA Tour, 1.5 strokes was also the difference between No. 2 Els and the 88th-ranked player in scoring average. – Tiger Woods as 2007’s $$$ Athlete.
