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).
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.
