Well, it has certainly generated some discussion on other golf websites. It's not Westwood's fault that this is how the OWGR works but he seems to be taking some stick for it. Perhaps Martin Kaymer can take the no. 1 spot fairly and squarely (albeit for weeks/months)?

Wendy, it seems to me that "fair and square" can sometimes yes and sometimes no be applied to the ranking system. There have been better players for the past year than Tiger, yet somehow they have not ascended. I suspect that his consistent excellence is what kept him at the top.

Despite criticism of the OWGR over the years, at least it was clear that TW was No.1 in the world, no argument. Now there is an avalanche of criticism of the rankings (I was surprised you didn't think it was generating office or bar room discussion) partly because it is clear that TW is no longer the best player in the world, and partly because the No.1 will probably go to Westwood by default.
I feel that Westwood is taking too much stick about this although he's obviously not responsible for how the rankings work. I feel he did try to "earn" it by playing in Scotland despite his injured calf. Also there is criticism of his lack of PGA Tour wins and no major. I think Couples & Duval also got to the no. 1 spot w/o a major? When I say "fair & square" for Kaymer, I mean at least by earning enough points in forthcoming ranking events to take the lead. I think if TW does not come good next year, the OWGR will mean even less that in previous years as the No. 1 spot could change hands every few weeks/months with none of us being able to say that anyone is clearly the best player in the world.
