DO YOU KNOW? No one submitted the correct answer to last week’s trivia question. There have been 9 golfers to hold the #1 golf ranking for just 1 week before being dethroned. 8 of those golfers held the #1 spot again at some point in their respective careers: Ballesteros, Couples, Donald, Duval, Els, Faldo, Norman and Woods. Tom Lehman has been the only golfer to hold the #1 ranking for 1 week and never to return. He held the spot for the week of April 20, 1997 taking over from Greg Norman who had held it for 96 weeks. The week of April 27, 1997 saw Norman retake the position and hold it for another 7 weeks.
