No matter what happens this weekend, Tiger Woods will not be the world’s number one golfer on Monday. The position will be filled by either Martin Kaymer or Lee Westwood replacing Woods who has had 281 weeks in the top position.
Martin Kaymer needs to win or finish second in this weekend’s European Tour event to take the world number one title. If not, Lee Westwood will assume the title despite missing the tournament through injury.
The world golf rankings are based on ranking points obtained over the previous two years and these two guys have accumulated more points than anyone else.
