Woods sees pathway to being No. 1 again

On the two-year anniversary of losing his No. 1 ranking, Tiger Woods (pictured right) said Thursday that winning was the best way for him to get back to the top. And that could take some time. Four players have been No. 1 over the last two years. The current top ranking belongs to Rory McIlroy, who has widened his lead by winning the U.S. PGA Championship and consecutive tournaments during the FedEx Cup playoffs. “Rory is playing a lot of events, and so am I, toward the beginning of the year,” Woods said in Singapore, where he staged a youth clinic on putting. “It’s about winning golf tournaments. That’s how I got to No. 1, that’s how Rory got to No. 1. You’ve got to win golf tournaments, and when you don’t, you’ve got to be consistent and finish high.” – AP
