Tiger Woods Falls Out of Top 100 For First Time Since 1996

After an unprecedented 18-year run, Tiger Woods has fallen out of the top 100 world golf rankings.

It has not been a good couple of years for Tiger Woods. Injuries have seemingly derailed his run at Jack Nicklaus’ record 18 major wins, and at this point in his career, without a win since the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational, Tiger will be lucky to win a tournament period, let alone another four majors to catch Jack.

And now, after an unprecedented 18-year run, Woods has fallen out of the top 100 world golf rankings, coming in at No. 104 on the list—this after his self-imposed indefinite break from the game due to his poor play being “not acceptable for tournament golf.” The last time Tiger was not in the top 100 was September 1996, when he was ranked No.225. He then went on to win the Las Vegas Invitational as a 20-year-old for the first of his of 79 PGA career victories.

No word on whether Woods will be vying for a fifth green jacket by playing in this year’s Masters tournament, but unless he’s 100 percent both physically and mentally, and his golf game back on track, it might be a good idea to skip it lest he do any more damage to his already tenuous legacy.
