There is no argument at this point that there is not clear top golfer in the world. However, the question now changes from Tiger's ability to everyone else's ability to take ahold of the golf world.
What comes into question is a golfer's ability to maintain their game. That is where Tiger was able to hold his throne for so long, for two different time periods. Right now, that is what seems to become the determining factor is in finding a World No. 1.
So the question now becomes who is the next person who will take the throne of golf. So who seems to be in line to become golf royalty?
It appears right now that the top spot is more a revolving door, open for anyone to take. Through the 2011 season, I believe there will be multiple No. 1s, which is why in this show there are golfers who would have to play well for a year just to earn the spot on this list, because there isn't a top dog.
