Assuming you're not a member of the McGrane family, why's this significant? This: according to the AP, Westwood needs to finish in the top 5 this week to hold onto his top ranking, or Martin Kaymer will retake it. And don't rule out Luke Donald, who's playing this weekend in New Orleans. He takes the top spot with a finish of T2 or better at the Zurich Classic.
OK, so it's obvious that the No. 1 ranking will be in play for months to come. So we need to attach some more significance to this. How about this: for every week you spend at No. 1, you get one stroke knocked off your card at the major of your choice. Hey, could've helped Kaymer make the cut at Augusta this year.
