The latest golf rankings are a brutal reminder of how far Tiger Woods has fallen

The 14-time Major winner has slipped to his lowest ranking in more than 18 years.

TIGER WOODS HAS slipped out of golf’s top 100 players for the first time since 1996.

Former world number one Woods - a 14-time major winner - has not played on the PGA Tour since announcing his intention in February to take an indefinite break from golf.

That decision came on the back of injury problems and a notable deterioration in Woods’ form.

However, Woods’ absence from the game has now seen him fall to 104th in golf’s world rankings – his lowest level since leaping from 221st to 75th with a maiden PGA Tour victory at the 1996 Las Vegas Invitational.

The 39-year-old, though, is said to be making significant steps towards appearing in the first major of the year, The Masters, which begins on 9 April.

Rory McIlroy remains at world number one, while Jordan Spieth climbs from sixth to fourth, Dustin Johnson jumps two to seventh, and Jimmy Walker – winner of the Texas Open on Sunday - pushes Justin Rose out of the top 10.
