LIV Golf's Phil Mickelson believes "there will probably be another ranking system that is more credible" for the best golfers in the world in the not too distant future.
There has been plenty of criticism from Tour players, golf fans and the media about the current structure of the OWGR, particularly in recent months.
None greater than seeing Jon Rahm win four of his last six tournaments only to move from sixth to third in the world rankings.
Rahm recently called the OWGR "a joke".
In the eyes of Mickelson, who is still waiting for a decision to be made on whether LIV Golf tournaments will receive any OWGR points of their own in 2023, the current system has "lost any credibility."

As it stands, the likes of LIV Golf players and major champions Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Reed find themselves well outside the top 40 in the world.
Mickelson himself is down in 254th.
Speaking to Sports Illustrated's Bob Harig ahead of the Saudi International on the Asian Tour this week, Mickelson, 52, believes some tournaments on the PGA Tour, especially major championships, may start to "go away" from the OWGR altogether.
Harig asked Mickelson:
Mickelson spoke about a number of other topics with Harig, including his thoughts on LIV Golf entering its second season with a new TV partner, the controversy surrounding World No.1 Rory McIlroy and Reed in Dubai, and the prospect of winning more major championships.
Lefty also addressed Harig's question as to whether or not he had received any animosity among from those on the PGA Tour since the emergence of LIV Golf last summer.
Mickelson shook his head.
In fact, Mickelson claims to received plaudits from some players on the PGA Tour, who are now playing for even greater sums of prize money as a result of LIV Golf.
