PGA Tour - Will Tiger end it this weekend?
Willend his reign as world no. 1 at the Bridgestone Invitational 2010 this weekend?
It's a surprising possibility, one, no one would have considered a year ago. After all, Tiger has won seven of the nine Bridgestone Invitationals played at the South Course.
However, if he continues playing the way he's done in the first 3 rounds, Woods' no. 1 spot in the Official World Golf Ranking could end on Sunday, after 269 straight weeks at the top since June 12, 2005.
Tiger is languishing in 78th position, two places from finishing last. This could be his worst finish ever in a four-round event since he turned pro. In his debut, he tied for 60th in the 1996 Greater Milwaukee Open.
Woods began the Bridgestone Invitational carding 74 and 72. A third round 75 yesterday saw him plunge to 78th in the 80-man field on 11-over par. He's only shot above par in nine of 87 rounds, and three of those have come this week.
could become world No. 1 for the first time in his career if he finishes fourth or higher, and Tiger stays outside the top 44.
Tiger himself admitted, "Well, if Phil plays the way he's supposed to this weekend, then he'll be No. 1".
