According to Sport24, British Opener winner Phil Mickelson and fellow American Matt Kuchar, who finished third on the money list, have also been nominated for the honour, known as the Jack Nicklaus Award.
Woods won five times on the tour this year, including the Players Championship and two World Golf Championship events, and finished second in the FedExCup behind Swede Stenson, the report said.
While Woods had the most successful year, Stenson ended it in spectacular style with two FedExCup victories including Sunday's Tour Championship, which secured him the Cup, the report added.
Australian Scott won the Masters and the Barclays and finished fourth in the FedExCup after six top-ten finishes in the season, the report further said.
The winner of the award will be announced on Friday, September 27, according to the report.
