Rory McIlroy continues to maintain a healthy lead at the top of the world rankings with the first major of the season, the Masters, set to begin on April 9 at Augusta.

The Northern Irishman leads Sweden's Henrik Stenson who is 3.19 points back in No. 2 while Americans Bubba Watson and Jordan Spieth are three and four with Australian Jason Day completing the top five.

McIlroy is attempting to win the green jacket for the first time and complete his set of winning all four majors.

Former No. 1 Tiger Woods fell out of the top 100 for the first time in his career. The 14-time major champion, who has not played since pulling out of the Farmer's Open in early February due to back problems, has slipped to 104th in the rankings.

The 39-year-old American first topped the list in 1997 and has spent 683 weeks as world No. 1, more than twice as long as any other player. Woods's last major title was the 2008 US Open.
