Tiger could loose World Number One Ranking

Tiger Woods appears unconcerned about the threat he is facing at this week’s Bridgestone Invitational; he could be knocked spot as the World’s number One Golfer.

Tiger, who has held the position now for an amazing 269 straight weeks since 2005, and 611 weeks in total, is being challenged by Englishman Lee Westwood and fellow American Phil Mickelson.

Mickelson could reach the number one spot by winning the Tournament, or with a top four finish providing Tiger finishes well down the field.

Westwood, the world’s number three could become number one with several ways depending on the outcome on Sunday.

'Of course I'm conscious when people keep asking me about it,' Woods said, at a recent press conference. 'But the best way of sustaining my run is winning golf tournaments, so that is where the focus is this week. Winning takes care of a lot of things and being No 1 is one of them.'

Tiger's last two Tournaments have heralded disappointing results; 46th at the AT &T National and tied 23rd at the British Open.

He is also be looking to raise his Ryder Cup Standing position, he is currently ninth, one spot from automatic qualification into the Team.
