It has officially become the worst year in the career of Tiger Woods. Following his numerous affairs, divorce from wife Elin, and poor play he has officially lost the top ranking to Lee Westwood. While the rankings are far from perfect, Westwood has not played in sometime due to a lower leg injury, it show just how far Tiger has fallen. Woods has always had the ability to bounce back quickly from swing changes, injury, or scandals. This year has left him reeling as he struggles to find some sort of peace in his life.
Westwoods reign may be very short lived. With Woods, Mickelson, and Westwood all playing in China this week the number one spot it essentially up for grabs. Perhaps losing the top spot will motivate Woods to find his form once again.
