Golf: Woods Has Top Ranking in His Sights Again

American golfer Tiger Woods has the world top ranking in his sight again, if he has a strong finish this week at the Nissan Open in Los Angeles, California.

Knocked out of the top spot for the last 24 weeks, Woods can bump Vijay Singh of Fiji with a fourth place finish or better at the Riviera Country Club. Woods is playing well, winning three times and tying for third in his last four stroke-play tournaments.

While Singh and American and reigning Masters champion Phil Mickelson are not in the field this week, Woods will have to overcome the course itself. Riviera is the only PGA Tour course Woods has played at least four times as a professional without winning.
