Monday Movers: Lee Westwood Overtakes Tiger for World's No. 1
Lee Westwood -- For the first time in 281 weeks, someone other than Tiger Woods sits atop the world rankings. The Englishman becomes the first European to hold the No. 1 spot since Nick Faldo did so in 1994. What's most surprising about the accomplishment is that it comes despite Westwood only finishing one tournament since his runner-up finish at the British Open in July. German Martin Kaymer missed his opportunity to deny Westwood and claim that spot for himself after failing to finish in the top two at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters this weekend.
