In other news, Nebraska is expected to play in the national title game, even though they didn’t win their conference title.

If you don’t get that joke, don’t worry. It’s for college football geeks like me.

Word is, if Sergio wins this week’s WGC at Doral, and Tiger Woods finishes 27th or worse, the 29-year-old Spaniard will eclipse Woods for the number one spot in the world. This without ever having won a major, and this with Tiger having won four of the last six stroke play events in which he has participated.

In other words, the world golf rankings are a bit silly.

If the above scenario plays out and Garcia does take over the number one spot, we’ll still know who the best player in the world is. We don’t need a computer formula to tell us.

I think I’m one of the few American golfers who actually likes Sergio. A few months ago, I even picked him to win this year’s Masters. But it’s ridiculous to say he is the number one player in the world. Ask any professional in the world who they would rather play against: Tiger or Sergio? Should this even be up for discussion?

As I said, the golf rankings are a bit silly. If Garcia does climb to the top, hopefully he’ll enjoy his brief stay.
