Tiger plummets to OWGR No. 62; Day up to fourth

RSS

Tiger Woods' plummet down the Official World Golf Ranking continues.

Woods on Sunday officially dropped to No. 62 in the world, his lowest position since Oct. 5, 1996, the week he won his first PGA Tour title.

Based on his standing, Woods is not currently in position to qualify for the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral in March. His last chance to make the field may come at the Honda Classic from Feb. 26-March 1, but the state of his game and his health provide more questions than answers at this point.

On a happier note, Jason Day ascended to No. 4 with his playoff victory at the Farmers Insurance Open and passed Adam Scott as the world's top-ranked Aussie. Day spent seven weeks in the No. 4 spot from February to April last year but has never cracked the top three.

The only other change in the top 10 came from Jim Furyk leap-frogging Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia to get to sixth, despite Furyk's not having won a tournament since the 2010 Tour Championship. Furyk and Garcia had the week off, while Rose missed the cut at Torrey Pines.

One other move in the right direction, India's Anirban Lahiri went from 73rd to 37th with his win at the Maybank Malaysian Open, putting him in position for a potential Masters invite.

Here is your top 10 in the Official World Golf Ranking for the week of Feb. 8, 2015: 1. Rory McIlroy, 2. Henrik Stenson, 3. Bubba Watson, 4. Jason Day, 5. Adam Scott, 6. Jim Furyk, 7. Sergio Garcia, 8. Justin Rose, 9. Jordan Spieth, 10. Matt Kuchar.
