Tiger Woods closes in on #1 golf ranking
By mustang6560 on 7/23/12
Did anyone check the Official World Golf Ranking this morning?

Well, former world number one Tiger Woods moved two steps closer to regaining his status as the best golfer in the world. Tiger jumped Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood to reach number two in the ranking. The only person standing in his way now is Luke Donald.

It wasn't long ago Tiger fell outside the top 50 and nearly failed to qualify for his own tournament - the Chevron World Challenge (which he would win). But, times are much different now than the were in 2010 and 2011. Despite a poor weekend performances in the last two majors and a couple missed cuts in 2012, Tiger's form is much closer to where he (and the majority of golf fans) want it to be. I'm willing to bet that by the end of the year, Tiger will once again be ranked at the top of the Official World Golf Ranking.

Anyone want to take me on that bet?

"But, time are much different now". Change to "times".

I should start keeping track of who finds typos in my posts. Then, I could give an award at the end of the year to the user who finds the most errors.

Mustang, the only problem is that you cannot count that high.

@srogers13- That's what Excel is for :)

I find typos in your posts many times but I'm too busy enjoying the contents that I'm reading. It's not like I don't understand what you are writing or trying to tell us. If I get confused of your meaning from the typos, I will inform you or ask you to clarify. Thanks for all you do and please keep up the great work.

"....THAN they were in 2010 and 2011." It's not just you Mustang, it seems no one understands the difference anymore. 'Then' is an adverb related to a point in time. 'Than' is typically used for comparison purposes and is a conjunction. This drives me crazy as much as the blatant incorrect use of two, to and too. Three different words mean three totally different things. Or, they're, there and their. Oh God, now you've got me going.....I bet I can win that award, but you'd hate me by the 2nd day, let alone the end of the year. So, I will remove myself from the contest. I like this place too much. (Did you notice that? I said "TOO much," not "to much." Which is better THAN saying "two much."

not 1 comment about the actual article, thats impressive, especially a Tiger piece
Matt McGee says:
Ok, I'll comment on the article. " Despite a poor weekend performances in the last two majors...." Third place in the Open Championship is poor?
eye cant like get Why u wood "say" thing's like, that. Its just knot write.
snuffyword says:
OK, I'll be your huckleberry. I am not going to take that bet. Tiger will probably be No.1 eventually, if not by the end of the year. I don't think the rankings are that important to Tiger, with the exception of being in the top 50 so he can play in his own tournament. It's a nice topic to chat about but the continuing talk seems to be "Is he back?" I think his focus is the 18 majors and 82 wins. The ranking will take care of itself if he continues to play well enough to be in the top-10 at each tournament.
mjaber says:
The OWGR are so unstable right now, it's anybody's game. Just like Tiger's game right now. You can't predict what will happen from week to week.
GolfSmith7 says:
Tiger will win the next major. In each one he has improved his finish and that will be the victory that puts him back at no. 1
umdoh says:
@Doug It is annoying. Almost like starting a sentence with the word "or".
BAKE_DAWG40 says:
I'm not taking that bet either. Oh, and I will not point out typos. My wife dings me on that stuff all the time. She's a stickler on grammar.
Banker85 says:
The poor performance he is referring to is the fact he was +3 for the weekend and had he played a little better (not card a SEVEN) he would have been right in at at the end. He will reach number 1 probably after the PGA.
Swingem says:
Coulda-Shoulda-Woulda! Do It, and then we can talk. Till then, it's just blowin smoke.

Grammar is the difference between knowing your shit, and knowing you're shit.
