PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- If you are like most people, the world ranking is a vague, ambiguous and unintelligible index that purports to throw a bunch of unrelated world golf events into the blender, hit puree, then spit out some semblance of numerical sense.

Like many of us, Phil Mickelson said Tuesday that he doesn't understand how the ranking is calculated and doesn't care to learn. The good news for the five-time U.S. Open runner-up is that second place this week could be good enough for Lefty to climb the highest mountain for the first time -- to No. 1 in the vaunted standings.

According to the world ranking formula, Mickelson can ascend to No. 1 for the first time in his career if:

1. He wins outright, no matter where current No. 1 Tiger Woods finishes;

2. Mickelson finishes solo second and Woods finishes outside the top four;

3. Mickelson finishes solo third and Woods finishes is outside the Top 18;

4. Mickelson finishes in a two-way tie for third and Woods misses the cut.

Woods has been ranked No. 1 for the past 262 weeks and a record 604 weeks in his career. Mickelson also has never topped the final PGA Tour money list, won the Vardon Trophy or been voted the PGA Tour Player of the Year.

Wow Thunderpants you are an absolute stain. You explain so well what is wrong with America. It starts with a long look in the mirror. Is tiger a good person? Nope, as are many pro athletes. To simplify it by race shows how simplistic and sad you and your life are.

Good point...Hey there Thunderpants,  cute name ya hillbilly, redneck.  We called my son the same thing when he would fart as a 6-7 year old.  But I suppose your name is much more indicative of your overall sexual prowess...again cute.  In an attempt to "learn ya some shit",  Tiger is more Asian than Black, and has been playing professional golf longer than Obama has been an elected politition.  Also, Holier than thou Conservatives have had, and apparently are to ignorant to avoid continued scandal, of  homosexual, financial, or adulterous nature.  You want change?  Try listening to, and electing politions that dont do the EXACT,LIE TO YOUR FACE thing that you accuse Tiger of.  Climb outta yer bunker, take that hood off yer head, wipe the Skoal long cut off yer face, and try contributing something worthwhile to a coversation.  This blog was written mearly to point out the several ways Phil can take over first place, NOT to point out that Tiger is "better"(morally or otherwise), or the race of OUR President.  If this seems like Im doing the exact same thing as you....being narrow minded, and racist, trust that I am not...Just emphasizing your ignorance using the same tactics as you choose.

The absolute essential ingredient to making America work is that we allow people with extreme and ignorant opinions to have their say.

Woods is a typical black man with money. He doesn't have a clue what to do with it because you can't put a price on that chip on his shoulder. I hope Tiger ( the media darling for so many years ) never wins again. I'm amazed at how after the cussing, his caddy treating people like animals, his kids have no father, people still cheer for this loser. It's time to wake up America and call a bum a bum. Just like all the liberal idiots that voted for Obama. You wanted change well this guy lied to your face and you only have chnage in your pocket. Guys like Dan Patrick are to stupid to know when a man looks you in the eye while giving you a reach around. Go Phil......Anyone but Tiger.
