Tiger Woods Falls Out of Golf's Top 50 It's the first time in 15 years Woods has not been in top 50 By Mark Russell, Newser Staff Posted Oct 3, 2011 3:40 AM CDT 4 comments Comments Tiger Woods fell out of golf's top-50 ranking this week for the first time in 15 years. (Getty Images) (Newser) – What a difference a few years and too much exercise between the sheets can make. For the first time in 15 years, Tiger Woods is no longer in golf's top 50, reports CNN. Woods had been tied for 50th with Louis Oosthuizen, but Oosthuizen tied for fifth in a tournament in Scotland, moving him up the rankings. Woods was last out of the top 50 on Oct. 13, 1996, but since then has won 14 major tournaments. His last tournament win was in November 2009 at the Australian Masters.
