Adam Scott Reaches Golf Summit
TODAY IS MONDAY, MAY 19, and Australian Adam Scott is No. 1, according to the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR). Scott, out of action this past week, slipped by Tiger Woods, who is out of action indefinitely. Woods had held the top spot for 60 consecutive weeks.

Scott is the 17th player to be ranked No. 1 since the inception of the OWGR. The 2013 Masters champion sounded ho-hum about the No. 1 thing.
"I hope I'm keeping myself in a similar kind of position for awhile. But I haven't really thought about it too much. I'm really just into the process of trying to get my game better all the time. Pretty much wins takes care of all the rankings and all the questions..."
Scott said he'd rather win the U.S. Open than be No. 1. Sure. But being No. 1 isn't a terrible milestone, especially since he doesn't still have the major "monkey" on his back after his Masters victory.
Poor Lee Westwood and Luke Donald. They had to answer all those questions about being No. 1 without a major.
