Adam Scott new World # 1

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Congrats to the Aussie for the achievement. Over the years the rankings have been a bit confusing to the public as it concerns the value of certain events and longevity. The networks still attempt to turn every Major or significant World Golf event into a 2 man race, even when the other isn't playing, for fear of losing the fan base of golf. Spoiler alert to NBC and the GC, the golfing public is wiser than you give us credit for and we have moved on, and so should they.

 

"Good on ya Mate'",  for your assent to the Top of the heap and may you stay there long enough to enjoy the view!

Um, not quite there yet. May get there next week but TW still #1 at the moment.

It will almost certainly happen, at the latest, after the Memorial - Tiger loses that win off his OWGR calculation, and everything else continues to get fewer points due to reduction in weighting.

I fully expected him to be #1 after The Players.
Congrats to him when it does happen, but I'm sure he himself would admit he'd like to reach #1 whilst competing with Tiger, not just because he's injured.

The OWGR calculator takes over this week. He'll be moving into the top spot. I feel like it would be more satisfying with Tiger playing, though.

Let's not all get too excited.  He just got married.  His game will go south like the rest of us. ;-)

It looks like Scott needs to finish in a two way tied 13th or better at Colonial to hold onto #1 over Stenson who finshed t7 at the BMW.  He is currently t11, but there are 56 players within 6 shots of the lead, so it is really anyone's ballgame.

 

With Rory's win, there look to be 5 players (not counting Tiger) who could claim #1 in the coming weeks (assuming Scott doesn't extend his lead with a top 2 or 3 finish).  A win by Jordan Spieth would put him into the mix also.

I just wish they'd make #1 "TBD" right now. It's kinda ridiculous all this hype over it but no one really deserves it. Adam Scott and Henrik Stenson haven't been in contention on a Sunday since early this year and they're battling for #1? Just can't take the ranking seriously. Not until someone goes out and actually earns it. Maybe Rory can get hot here, pile up a couple wins and go out and earn it.

Well, Scott played like he was #1 today and the win means that it is unlikely we will see any chance for a change at the top until the US Open (where Stenson and possibly Kuchar, Watson and Rory could go to #1 with a win depending on how Scott fares).
