This week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational we had a changing of the guard at No. 1. Tiger Woods took the top spot in the world from Rory McIlroy, without much of a fight from Rory, who wasn't in attendance at Bay Hill.

Where was Rory? Four hours away, down in Miami to watch his girlfriend, Caroline Wozniacki, play in the Sony Open. Did he spent some time at some of the exclusive golf clubs that pepper the state of Florida? Nope, Rory was seen hitting balls at the Miami Municipal Golf Course, a public golf course for all the world to visit.

[Also: Tiger Woods' climb back to No. 1 ranks as one of his greatest accomplishments]

How chill was Rory's range session? The two-time major winner was rocking shorts and using a carry bag instead of the usual staff bag that all players use during tournament time.

Hey, sometimes as a golfer you just crave that big bucket of golf balls. McIlroy will be back out on the PGA Tour this week at the Shell Houston Open.
