If Phil gets it it will clearly be more of a lifetime achievement kind of thing rather than anyone thinking he was really the best player this year.  And in his heart Phil would know that and it would make it a pretty sour triumph for him. IMO.

I am probably just ignorant but is there some written criteria for POY.  I thought it was just how the players vote their opinion of who had the "best year", but there isn't a specific definition of what is a "best year".  Is that correct or am I ignorant?

The PGA of America has an objective points criteria with Tiger having clinched that already.  I think Turtleback or someone else described it above.

 

The PGA Tour lets the players vote which makes it more subjective, but typically they vote the same winner as the PGA of America.

I think Phil must really be relieved that Tiger got it, because it spares him a year's worth of being asked whether he thought he really deserved it.
