Tiger Woods drops to 704 in world golf rankings

Every golf fan and most sports fans are well aware that Dustin Johnson has risen to be the No. 1 player in the world following his dominating victory at the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club.

But what about the former No. 1 player who held the top spot for 683 weeks of his illustrious career?

Tiger Woods did some moving on this week’s Official World Golf Rankings too, but it was in the opposite direction as the 14-time major champion dropped from No. 693 and now sits in a tie with Max Kramer for No. 704, just behind Titch Moore (703) and just ahead of Himmat Rai (706).

Even though Woods was not in the field this week, there was plenty of Tiger talk centering around his cancelled press conference and the subsequent explanation from his agent, Mark Steinberg.

Steinberg said that they are “not talking about an extended break” for Woods this time, but there has been no word on if he will play at the Arnold Plamer Invitational (where he has won eight times) or The Masters (where he has won four times) or at all, for that matter.

For now, the last memory golf fans have is of Woods firing a 77 at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic (an event he had won twice) and subsequently withdrawing due to back spasms.
