The inevitable No. 1 player in the world
I said last November that, if they calculated Tiger Woods’ position in the Official World Golf Ranking by using his actual number of rounds played rather than the arbitrary minimum of 40, he would have been second even back then (“From the Morning Read inbox,” Nov. 29, 2018).
Do the calculation now and he is a very clear top, at 11.8 against the next two below 10. As I pointed out, those guys competing for first place had better make it quick, because it won't last as he gains points in the 14 events he is short.
And I’ll bet they know it.
