Tiger Woods drops out of top 1000 for the first time in the World Golf ranking

Los Angeles: Tiger Woods has dropped outside the top 1,000 players in the world for the first time in his professional career according to the latest rankings on Monday.

The official World Golf Ranking showed Woods placed at 1,005, reflecting the former World No 1's injury-hit two years.

Woods, whose attempts to resurrect his career have been scuttled by a series of operations on his back since 2014, has made only one top-20 finish in the past two seasons.

The 41-year-old once held the World No 1 ranking for a record 683 weeks.

This year Woods' rehabilitation from injury was overshadowed by his arrest in May for driving under the influence.

Last month, the 14-time major winner said he planned to seek professional help to treat pain medication dependency.

Woods, whose 79 career PGA Tour wins are three shy of Sam Snead's all-time record, has not won a major title since the 2008 US Open and has not won any event since the 2013 World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational.
