Those who believe that Tiger Woods’ return to the top of the PGA rankings has been hollow because of his inability to win a major may feel some satisfaction this weekend:

Woods could lose his No. 1 ranking to defending Masters champion Adam Scott, according to the Golf Channel.

According to the channel’s world-ranking guru Alan Robison, Scott could supplant Woods as No. 1 if he were to win the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral in Miami and Woods not finish in the top five to seven.

Scott needs at last 60 points to leapfrog Woods into the No. 1 spot. Russell Henley earned 60 points for his win at the Honda Classic last weekend, and the Golf Channel reports the Doral event should be worth more because it has a stronger field.
