Tiger Woods has suffered a dismal 2015, which has hit a new low, as he has fallen out out of golf’s top 100 for the first time since September 1996, sitting in 104th position.
The 39-year-old has won 14 majors, and this is the first time that he has sat outside the top 100 in 18 years, having spent a total of 683 weeks at top spot throughout his stunning career.
Woods’ career is coming to an unsavoury end, with the legend constantly battling through injury, announcing only in February that he would be taking a break from the sport, as he no longer views his play as “acceptable for tournament golf,” as quoted by CNN – and this latest hit typifies his fall from grace.
Here are the best posts, as Twitter comes to terms with the shock news:

So Tiger Woods drops outside the top 100 for the 1st time since forever (ok since 1996). I’m not the biggest Tiger fan, but golf misses him

Tiger Woods dropping out of the world top 100. Raheem Sterling turning down a £180k a week deal. Stop the world, I want to get off.

What a fall from grace Tiger Woods has had, best golfer I’ve ever seen and he’s now 104th in the world. Madness.
