Woods drops further down world rankings

6:08 am on 10 May 2011

Tiger Woods' continues to tumble down the world golf rankings.

After losing his long-held world number one ranking to Lee Westwood last October, Woods has failed to turn around his winless streak, and he's slipped another place to number eight in the world.

Woods has been out of action since picking up a knee injury during the Masters earlier this month, but he's set to return for this week's Players Championship in Florida.

Europe now has six of the top seven players in the world, with only Phil Mickelson in fourth spot breaking their stranglehold.
