Tiger Woods remains in the top spot on the 2013 World Golf Rankings after 46 weeks and will likely stay at No. 1 for the remainder of the year. While he sat out for the week though, Adam Scott and Henrik Stenson each earned tournament victories that solidified their places in second and third on the rankings.
Stenson broke a tournament record at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, finishing 25 strokes under par, to earn the victory. With the win, Stenson boosted his total point total to 468.66 in the World Golf Rankings, making him the only golfer close to the 505.88 set by Woods, although Stenson has played in 17 more tournaments. As such, his 9.01 average per tournament is only third.
Ahead of Stenson is Scott, who earned a victory in the Talisker Masters at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia. The victory boosted his average to 9.78 points per tournament, placing a decent amount of distance between himself and Stenson, although both are far from the 12.34 point average of Woods.
Next up on the PGA schedule is the ISPS HANDA World Cup of Golf in Melbourne, Australia, that will feature Scott, although Stenson and Woods will not participate. Matt Kuchar and Graeme McDowell round out the other top ranked golfers that are expected to participate in the tournament.
