 Tiger Woods has slipped down the world rankings.

While Augusta Masters, the first major of 2015, attendance may still be unknown, one thing sure was that Tiger Woods has dropped out of the top 100 for the first time since 1996.

The former world No. one player dropped to 104 this week.

The 39-year-old has accumulated a record 683 total weeks as the world number one, including 11 different runs at the top. The 14- time major winner set the record for most consecutive weeks atop the rankings in a span from August 1999 to September 2004 and topped his own record with 281 straight weeks at No. 1 from June 2005 to October 2010.

Woods underwent back surgery in March 2014 and played in only eight tournaments last season and his last run as No. 1 was from March 2013 to May 2014.
