China Open win can give Stenson # 1

BY Bruce Young | European PGA Tour | 2014 Volvo China Open | General | 23 Apr 2014

A win by Henrik Stenson at the Volvo China Open this week in Shenzhen could well see the Swede take over as the World Number One position from Tiger Woods according to those who formulate the Official World Rankings.

As it stands right now a win by Stenson would move him past Adam Scott and Woods and to the top of the game’s rankings, becoming the 17th player to hold that coveted position if he was to do so.

The only proviso is that there are no withdrawals that would impact on the first place points of 32 attributed to the winner of the Volvo Open.
