What do you know, Tiger Woods made a little news while sitting at home on his couch and, presumably, watching the Players Championship in lieu of competing in it.

None of the four golfers poised to catch Woods for No. 1 overall -- Adam Scott, Matt Kuchar, Henrik Stenson, and Bubba Watson -- did so on Sunday and as such Woods will remain No. 1 for one more week.

Now, ironically, Scott will likely assume the spot next week after the Byron Nelson Championship while sitting on his couch, according to our resident expert on the OWGR data.

Kuchar is the only one of the four guys able to catch Woods playing in Dallas but it looks like not even a win would get him past Scott.

The Australian will become just the 18th world No. 1 in golf history (the stat was invented in 1986).

I haven't been thinking about No. 1 that much, obviously," said Scott before the Players Championship. "Look, I'm here to win golf tournaments. That's been the goal, and from that you can get to No. 1 in the world if you win enough, often enough."
