Tiger’s tumble continues
Tiger Woods has dropped another three places to No 36 in the latest world golf rankings.
Tiger Woods has dropped another three places to No 36 in the latest world rankings.
Open champion Darren Clarke, Spain’s Miguel Angel Jimenez and the PGA Tour’s newest first-time winner Webb Simpson have all climbed past Woods on the ranking ladder.
And with Woods not having qualified for the up-coming FedEx Cup play-offs starting with The Barclays this week, Woods is destined to fall even further.
Simpson, who captured the Wyndham Championship in North Carolina on Sunday, has soared up from 55th to 33rd in the World Rankings and finished on third heading into the FedEx Cup play-offs, while England’s Oliver Fisher, winner of the Czech Open, climbs from 507th to 238th.
