Tiger Woods had a rough year, from the tabloid turmoil that followed the unraveling of his marriage to his winless year on the course. But even in disgrace and defeat, Tiger was more interesting than franchises like the New Orleans Saints and San Francisco Giants ending long championship droughts or Lebron James and his Decision, at least according to the Associated Press.

The AP determines its “Sports Story of the Year” by asking its members to rank their Top 10 sports stories. Ballots were cast by 176 U.S. news organizations. Tiger’s Troubles ranked first, with 1316 points. The New Orleans Saints winning the Super Bowl not long after Hurricane Katrina was a close second with 1215. Lebron James and the NBA’s unprecedented free agency drama was third at 1085.

Tiger has yet to tweet about his “victory.”

The rest of the AP’s Top 10:

#4: Soccer had a World Cup and Spain won for the first time. Also there was a cool octopus and controversial noisemakers.

#5: The Giants won their first World Series in 52 seasons in San Francisco.

#6: Lots of NFL players got concussed, and lots of stories about head injuries were written.

#7: Jimmie Johnson drove an advertising-saturated car fast around in circles better than other people drove their billboard cars.

#8: Brett Favre came back (yet again), struggled and had his own sex(t) scandal.

#9: UConn women’s basketball became the first team to have consecutive undefeated seasons.

#10: UCLA coaching legend John Wooden died at age 99.
