Tiger will fix this issue and be back to #1. No one on tour is consistent enough to compete in world ranking points with a guy who wins 5 times or more a year. He's not even 40 yet and he just got off back surgery. People have short memories and forget about last year. As for the majors, I have no clue. Even last year it looked like a mental block once he got into contention.
Think we had a thread at one point asking this very question. I'm not sure he'll ever get back there but it'll be fun to watch. And even if he doesn't, the Tiger era lives.
