Tiger Woods used to own the world No. 1 ranking, occupying the position for a record-breaking 683 weeks over the course of his 20-year career.

Woods, however, is nowhere near the top spot, thanks to injuries and poor play over the last few years, falling to 1,199th entering the Hero World Challenge this week.

The 41-year-old has played well in his first two rounds, and will improve his ranking regardless of where he finishes Sunday evening, but a win could really move him up.

Should Woods claim the trophy at Albany for a sixth time, he'll vault to 134th in the world, according to Official World Golf Ranking projections.

Woods first reached the top spot June 15, 1997, and last held it on May 17, 2014.
