Tiger Woods lucky to stay world No 1

By Andy Rice 9 August 2010

Tiger Woods is still ranked No.1 golfer in the world, despite finishing 78th in a 80-man field at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio. Woods posted an 18-over par, his worst 72-hole score in his professional career, finishing 30 strokes behind winner Hunter Mahan. Tiger managed to retain the No 1 position largely thanks to the fact that the man who could have toppled Woods, Phil Mickelson, himself fired at 78, and finished 46th in the rankings. He needed to finish solo fourth or better to beat Woods to the No.1 spot. The PGA Championships, the last remaining major in 2010, starts on Thursday, and one wonders whether Woods will be able to sort himself out before then. Read more: AFP
