London, Jan 24 (ANI): Former World No.1 golfer Tiger Woods can again regain the top spot by April if he wins in Abu Dhabi this week and continues his good form till The Masters.
Woods will be making his debut in the tournament, but is a two-time winner of the Dubai Desert Classic.
A victory in Abu Dhabi will bring Woods back close to the top 10. And it is even possible that come The Masters in April he will have the chance to regain the number one spot, The Mirror reports.
With an appearance fee reported to be well into seven figures, Woods has chosen the Middle East for his first tournament of the year rather than the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.
The Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship is also his first since he ended more than two years without a victory at the Chevron World Challenge last month.
That was in a field of only 18, the highest ranked of whom at the time was number six Steve Stricker, but there were still enough points on offer to take Woods from 52nd to 21st, the paper reports.
He has slipped back to 25th during a six-week break, but because of the presence this week of Europe's world top four Luke Donald, Lee Westwood, Rory McIlroy and Martin Kaymer there are even more ranking points up for grabs.
Colin Montgomerie has predicted that Woods might even win two of this season's four majors.
"A Tiger victory at The Masters would be the best story for golf," Montgomerie told Press Association Sport. (ANI)
