Tiger Woods' staggering decline looks even worse in graph form

Cast your mind back to a year ago. Tiger Woods was coming off a five-win player-of-the-year season in 2013, and even though he started his 2014 season injured, he was still the best player in the world and everybody was excited about his race to play in the Masters.

Fast forward to now and the picture is entirely different, as has been recounted in numerous reports. Poor play, lack of play, injuries and driver struggles have all led to a drastic decline in his official world ranking -- from first on Feb. 8, 2014 to 62nd a year later, his lowest ranking since Oct. 5, 1996.

Here's a graph of his world ranking decline since this time last year:
