Tiger's Road Back To No. 1

Revisiting Tiger Woods' 877-day journey back to the top spot in the Official World Golf Ranking

March 25, 2013
Tiger Woods

Bumped From The Top

For the first time since March of 2005, Woods is replaced as the No. 1 player in the Official World Golf Rankings in October 2010. Lee Westwood ends a record-long streak of 281 weeks on top of the ranking for Tiger, who had broken his previous mark of 264 weeks set from 1999-2004. Martin Kaymer and finally Luke Donald would also hold the top spot during the 2011 season, as Woods plummeted out of the top 50.
