Tiger Woods Will Be Able to Play in Tiger Woods' Event!


There are plenty of moments over the last two years that have been telling in the fall of Tiger Woods, but the one that nearly happened this weekend would have been probably the worst.

Tiger, who hosts a tournament in December called the Chevron World Challenge, an event he was leading a season ago by four shots heading into Sunday only to lose to Graeme McDowell in a playoff, nearly fell so far down the world rankings that he wasn't allowed in his own event. Nearly.

Tiger has dropped to 49th in the world, and if he would have dropped outside the top-50, he wouldn't have been able to play his own event. It's just Tiger being Tiger!

Via the Associated Press ...

The Chevron World Challenge was allowed two years ago to offer ranking points, provided it have only two sponsor exemptions and both were among the top 50 in the world. Woods was at No. 46 going into the week, and was passed by Geoff Ogilvy, Sergio Garcia and Bill Haas. 


The tournament could have asked the PGA Tour for a change in criteria to allow Woods to play, although it might not have been able to award ranking points.

Maybe it's the lack of play lately from Tiger, or just the fact that I don't pay any attention to the world rankings, but how crazy is it that Woods is nearly out of the top-50 in the world?! This is a guy that was ranked number one for as long as one of my nephews has been alive, and now he is falling behind guys like Bill Haas?

Insane, but at least he got in his own event, that will take place in early December.

A lot of it is because he hasn't played. Since the min div is 40 (which is insanely high) he's essentially counting 14 zeroes. Divided by number of tournament's he's actually played he's still only around 15-20.

It's because he stinks at golf. BTW, the rankings were auspiciously dropped this week. Why?
