See the teaser below to an article Helen wrote at PGATour.com. What do you think? Tiger? Stenson?
Tiger: 5 wins on the PGA Tour. Stenson won on both tours and won the Fedex and the Race to Dubai, the European version of the Fedex. I tend to lean toward Stenson.

Tiger Woods took PGA TOUR honors. Henrik Stenson was the choice of the European Tour.
But if there was a worldwide player of the year chosen for 2014 Stenson likely would have gotten the nod in voting of his peers.
The Swede is the first player to win the FedExCup on the PGA TOUR and the Race to Dubai in Europe. Stenson did it was dramatic flair, too -- winning the season-ending events on both sides of the Atlantic, the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola and the DP World Tour Championship.
"For me the way he played golf the back end of the year was simply sensational," Ian Poulter said. "His consistency was incredible. He delivered when he needed to deliver.
"He had done it at the FedExCup and he had done it in Dubai, and to win both those events when he had to, very impressive to me."
Lee Westwood, who will team with his good friend Poulter at the Franklin Templeton Shootout this week, could see the case for both Stenson and Woods, who won five times in his first 11 events of the season.
