Adam Scott could become No. 1 by skipping Players Championship
Adam Scott needs a top 16 finish or no finish at all to take over the No. 1 spot in the world.
More No. 1: The four golfers who can take over
If you're looking for the smoking gun on why it's tough to take the world golf rankings seriously, here it is:
Adam Scott can take the world No. 1 spot from Tiger Woods by...not playing the Players Championship this weekend.
It's true. Because of the way the points are arranged Scott either needs to finish in the top 16 or not play in the tournament.
To Scott's credit, he doesn't seem to be taking the hoopla too seriously.
"I haven't really thought about it too much; I'm really just into the process of trying to get my game better all the time," he said.
Still, it's a big deal. Scott (or anyone else who takes over this week) would only be the seventh No. 1 since Woods took over in 1999 and the 17th since the rankings started in 1986.
When Scott was told about the weird loophole he laughed and said "see you later."
I laughed, too.
