World No. 1

In a story today by the Associated Press out of St. Andrews, Scotland it is reported that Lee Westwood will likely repace Tiger Woods at the number one spot at the end of the month.  That is, if Tiger stays with his game plan of not playing until the HSBC Champions event on November 4-7.  Westwood will not be playing until November either because of a right ankle injury. 

Tiger has been number one for more than 5 years, since the week before the 2005 U.S. Open at Pinehurst.  The shift at the beginning of Nov will be 279 weeks at number one.

Westwood suffered a calf injury during the French Open the first week in July causing swelling issues in his right ankle.  He has tried to fight through it but has withdrawn from a couple of events since.  Seems now, since Tiger doesn’t intend to play that he will cruise into the first spot without playing himself.

The HSBC Champions could shift number one again depending upon performance  by Tiger, Westwood, or Mickelson.
