Tiger Woods is in jeopardy of losing his number one ranking at this week’s Bridgestone Invitational. Both Lee Westwood and Phil Mickelson had the chance to overtake Tiger coming into this weekend if TW, but Westwood has withdrawn with that same nagging leg injury he’s had for a few weeks. He will not be playing in next week’s PGA Championship either. Speculation is that he’s resting up the leg for the Ryder Cup.
Phil on the other hand, can overtake Tiger with a win or a top four and with Tiger finishing outside the top 37. With rounds of 74 + 72 (failing to break par in either of the first two rounds of the Bridgestone), Tiger currently sits at a tie for 72nd place.
