Tiger Woods extends run as World No.1

Tiger Woods ended the year at No. 1 in the world ranking for the fourth consecutive season, while John Daly improved 456 spots to No. 51 -- one place short of earning an invitation to the Masters.

Woods had a substantial lead over Phil Mickelson, and likely will remain No. 1 through at least the first half of next year.

Lee Westwood, Colin Montgomerie, Hal Sutton and Tom Lehman all fell out of the top 10 this year, replaced by Sergio Garcia, PGA champion David Toms, U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen and Darren Clarke.

Daly was as high as No. 47 two weeks ago, but slipped four spots. The top 50 in the world ranking Monday were invited to the Masters. Daly can still get to Augusta if he is ranked in the top 50 on March 11.

Those added to the Masters field Monday were Montgomerie, Westwood, Padraig Harrington, Thomas Bjorn, Michael Campbell, Nick Price, Paul McGinley, Stuart Appleyby, Toru Taniguchi, Charles Howell III and Adam Scott.

Howell, who grew up in Augusta, qualified for the Masters despite not having a PGA Tour card this season. Playing on sponsors' exemptions, he earned more than $1.5 million and moved up to No. 45 in the world ranking.
