Thats one small tournament for Tom Watson, one giant leap up the ranks...




It's being proffered as consolation for Tom Watson, that he has had a welcome boost in the world rankings thanks to his second place at the Open. But considering Tom has been off the regular tour for some years now and the Open and Masters are the only tournaments he has entered the last two years, I doubt he'll really give a monkeys. But consider this, work with me here, if we remove the silly minimum divisor of forty, Tom would be averaging 15.00 - Why he'd be world number one! And at 59 too...
He may have fallen short of setting quite possibly more golfing records than anyone ever has yesterday, but he has gained one - the biggest leap up the world rankings in history, from World Number 1374 to 105. What odds he's top ten by Christmas?
