No.1 spot up for grabs this week in Ohio
The scenario to end Tiger Woods' reign atop the world ranking is more complicated than ever, and also closer than ever for Ernie Els and Vijay Singh.
Singh got to within .10 points after winning the PGA Championship, and he can get to No. 1 at the NEC Invitational by finishing ahead of Woods if both are in the top 10, or tying with Woods if they are outside the top 10.
For Els to return to No. 1, there are three scenarios:
-- Els wins, and Woods does not finish second alone.
-- Els is second, Woods does not finish in a two-way for fourth, and Singh is not in a two-way tie for third.
-- Els is third, Woods finishes worse than 15 and Singh finishes worse than 19th.
