After withdrawing from February’s event at Torrey Pines with back problems, Woods announced he would be taking an indefinite break from the sport, describing his performances this year as “unacceptable for tournament play”.

Woods, who carded an 82 at the Phoenix Open in January – his worst round as a professional – added that he won’t return until he can “compete at the highest level”.

The last time he was out of the top 100 was on 29 September 1996, when he was at Number 225.

It is not clear when Woods will return to the sport. He said in February that his scores were not acceptable and he would not play until his game was in tournament shape.

Woods first become world number one after finishing 19th at the 1997 US Open.
