Tiger Woods falls out of Top-100 for first time in 18 years

Tiger Woods looks in danger of missing his second successive Masters Tournament.

As of next Monday Tiger Woods, 14-time major winner will no longer be ranked among the world’s top-100 golfers.

Currently ranked at 96, Woods will not play in this weekend’s Shell Houston Open due to a lingering back injury and will drop out to 102nd in the world after the weekend.

Woods spent 683 weeks atop of the world golf rankings after claiming top spot after the US Open in 1997. Woods stormed into the world’s top-100 in 1996 when he won the Las Vegas Invitational and hasn’t dropped out of it since.

The 30-year-old Woods last won the Masters in 2005, and with just under two weeks away from the Masters, many were expecting Woods to tee it up this week in Houston. But with no sign of him in the field, many are wondering whether Woods will miss he second successive Masters, a major he has won four times with six top-10 finishes between 2006 and 2011.
