Who's No. 1? It may officially be Luke Donald, but that's up for much debate until he performs in a major.
In the court of public opinion, the answer to that question may await in the final round, when the matchup everyone's been waiting for takes place.
Indeed, the stage is set for a Tiger Woods vs. Rory McIlroy final pairing.
These two players entered the tournament neck and neck for second and third in the world, and it would be fitting if they could get a chance to square off head-to-head on Sunday.
An entire round still has to be played, but this is the best chance the game of golf has had at getting Tiger and Rory in the same group. It's in the year's final, typically less-exciting major at that.
According to the AccuWeather forecast, the sun will be shining on Sunday afternoon in Kiawah Island moreso than in Round 3, where there is a chance of thunderstroms.
Mother Nature has a way of changing her mind, though, so it remains to be seen just how much of a factor the elements will play.
One thing is certain, though, the wind and triple-digit heat indexes will still be a reality no matter what.
If Tiger and Rory manage to find their way to the last starting time, it will be a tournament for the ages no matter what happens.
Come on, golf gods. Is it too much to ask?
