Vijay Singh is Number 1

With great joy I congratulate Vijay Singh for beating Tiger Woods yesterday and finally putting a new name atop the list as the best golfer in the world. According to the Official World Golf Rankings Vijay Singh is now the number one golfer in the world.

Tiger had an impressive run of 264 weeks as the top ranked golfer in the world. It will be interesting to see how long Vijay will be able to hang on. If someone other than Tiger will bump him off. Or if this will piss Tiger off enough to make him call Butch Harmon so he can get back up there.

In any case, Vijay Singh not only won a tournament, but at the same time became the number one golfer in the world. If that isn't a cause for a celebration, I don't know what is. You could not have asked for a better way for Vijay Singh to dethrone Tiger Woods than playing him head-to-head in the last group of the day to not only decide a tournament, but then to top it off and take away his number one golf ranking in the world.

Don't worry Tiger, at least you've still got Elin!

You might be No. 1 Elin, but Tiger isn't.

No Three Putts says "thank you Vijay Singh, good luck as number one".
