(Newser) It's official: Tiger Woods is no longer in the top 10: Woods fell from 8th to 12th in world rankings published today. The golfer, who is out with left knee and Achilles injuries, hasn't won a tournament since the Australian Masters 18 months ago. Lee Westwood of England remains at No. 1, with Charl Schwartzel of South Africa taking Woods' place in the top 10. The last time Woods was ranked outside the top 10 was April 1997, before he won the Masters for the first of his 14 majors.
