Tiger Woods sinks to all-time career low in world golf rankings

Golf legend Tiger Woods has now sunk to the lowest Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) he has ever occupied during his glittering 27-year professional golf career.

Woods' dramatic slide down the world rankings has been a result of taking ample time out of the game to recover from ankle surgery back in April 2023. 

That was after he was forced to withdraw ahead of the final round of The Masters

What is Tiger Woods' World Ranking? 

The former long-time World No.1 is now ranked #1307 in the OWGR following the latest update on Monday November 13, 2023. 

Woods' previous low rank was #1294, which he assumed in February 2023. 

How many weeks has Tiger Woods spent as World No.1? 

Woods spent a record 683 weeks as #1.

That is some 352 weeks more than any other player (Greg Norman) since OWGR records began in 1986. 

When was Tiger Woods first World No.1?

Woods first achieved the feat of World No.1 in 1997 and the last time he held the post was back in 2014. 

How many consecutive weeks was Tiger Woods World No.1?

The 82-time PGA Tour winner holds the record for most consecutive weeks as World No.1 at 281.

He achieved that from June 2005 to October 2010. 

When will Tiger Woods return to the PGA Tour?

Woods' return date to the PGA Tour remains unknown.

There is some faint hope he will be able to tee it up at his annual Hero World Challenge at the end of November 2023.

Woods was seen caddying for his son Charlie Woods in a junior golf tournament earlier this month.

He will no doubt be hopeful he can participate in next month's PNC Championship alongside his son. 

Woods admitted his ankle was "fine" but that walking four rounds on the course with Charlie had taken its toll.

He also provided fans with an update on his TGL team ahead of his new tech-infused league alongside Rory McIlroy and the PGA Tour starting up in early January 2024.
