And with the U.S. Open there this year it might be his last chance to complete the career grand slam. It's at Winged Foot next year ..........
Astonishing given the long list of former #1s in the game now that have far fewer wins (except Tiger of course).
I always likened it to being ranked #1 during the college football season - essentially meaningless.
I would think that Montie and Greg Norman would trade in all their days at #1 for a few more majors (or one in Montie's case).
but doesn't come remotely close to winning a major. I also think for Phil his career is distinguished enough that not having been #1 has no bearing whatsoever on anything for him - how he's perceived, respect, career fulfillment, etc. It's just a fun and interesting fact, as offered by 84david.
Age 48 doing what he is doing blows my mind.
