Tiger Woods drops to 1,005th in the Official World Golf Rankings

Tiger Woods’ stock continues to fall, with the former World No.1 now languishing a shocking 1,005th in the official rankings.

It’s the first time Tiger has ever slipped outside of the top 1000 golfers during his professional career, and the trend looks set to continue as he struggles again and again to return to the golf course.

Official Golf Rankings calculates how good a golfer is on a two-year rolling system, and due to Woods’ lack of tournament appearances or missed cuts, he hasn’t managed to record a high enough spot to earn a place even close to where he reigned.

Lately, Woods has battled back from injuries and underwent surgery in April to help alleviate pain in his back and leg. Woods has had multiple back surgeries in the last few years, but hasn’t given up on getting back on the greens.

The last event Woods played was the Farmers Insurance Open in January, where he failed to make the cut.
