Can Els or Singh become World No.1 at US Open?
BY iseekgolf.com | US PGA Tour | 2004 US Open | General | 16 Jun 2004
Ernie Els and Vijay Singh could take the world number one spot if they win the US Open this week. Els would go number one if he won and Tiger Woods finished outside the top 6 and Singh would go number one if he won and Woods missed the cut.
The World Ranking of Week 24 13th June 2004 marks Tiger Wood’s 323rd total and 253rd consecutive week at World No.1. Greg Norman holds the record with 331 total weeks at No.1 in his career. If Woods maintains his current position atop the Official World Golf Ranking, he will tie Norman’s record later this year with the August 9th ranking and break the record with his 332nd week with the ranking of August 16th, the week following the PGA Championship.
“The Shark”, from Mt.Isa in Queensland, Australia, was World No.1 for 11 different sessions in a period spanning from 14th September 1986 to the 4th January 1998.
