Tiger Woods outside top 1,000 for first time in new rankings

Tiger Woods has slipped out of the world’s top 1000 for the
first time in his career.

TIGER Woods has dropped outside the top 1,000 players
in the world for the first time in his professional career,
latest rankings showed on Monday.

The official World Golf Ranking showed Woods placed at 1,005,
reflecting the former world No.1’s injury-hit two years that
have seen him hardly play.

Woods, whose attempts to resurrect his career have been
scuttled by a series of operations on his back since 2014, has
made only one top-20 finish in the past two seasons.

The 41-year-old once held the world No.1 ranking for a record
683 weeks. This year Woods’ rehabilitation from injury was
overshadowed by his arrest in May for driving under the
influence.

Last month the 14-time major winner said he planned to seek professional help to treat pain medication
dependency.

Woods, whose 79 career PGA Tour wins are three shy of Sam
Snead’s all-time record, has not won a major title since the
2008 US Open and has not won any event since the 2013 World
Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational.

chasing his first British Open title, on his third
visit to Royal Birkdale.
