Collin Morikawa is much closer to Jon Rahm
Although not brilliant, Jon Rahm after 21 / o place at the Genesis Invitational (PGA Tour) remained at the helm of the men’s golf world ranking with a total of 8.8654 points. After a long domination, however, the Spaniard saw his leadership waver.
The American Collin Morikawa (finalist at The Genesis, with a success in California would have mounted the world throne for the first time) recovered points and ground. Second with 8.5256, Morikawa now follows the Iberian ace.
Collin Morikawa, ranking
Another step forward for Scottie Scheffler. Entering the Top 10 thanks to the feat (the first on the circuit) at the Phoenix Open, the American (seventh at The Genesis) gained another three positions by moving from ninth to sixth (6.0254).
Justin Thomas is doing well too, from eighth to seventh place (5.9257). Reverse course for Xander Schauffele (gold medalist at the Tokyo Games), from seventh to eighth. Instead, Dustin Johnson fell three places, first sixth and now ninth (5.8857) after the slashing elimination of The Genesis.
Joaquin Niemann goes from 32 / o to 20 / o (4.3329) thanks to his second career success on the circuit (the Chilean gave him The Genesis). He is one of the most successful sportsmen of all time, as well as one of the richest in the world.
In terms of firsts, Tiger Woods is still present: 15 major tournaments won, 110 professional tournaments, the most successful golfer in the history of the sport. Statistics that explain why he managed to stay at the top of the world rankings for 683 weeks (including 281 consecutive) and especially because in 2014 he became the first athlete in the world to have crossed the billion dollar mark.
Astronomical figure which also justifies the fact that Tiger Woods can afford a yacht like the Privacy, a real fairy tale boat. And obviously, we’re talking about something that was expensive. If you imagine a luxury yacht and some comfort on board, then Privacy has it.
48 meters long, with a total area of 600 square meters, this yacht was purchased by the golfer in 2004. Equipped with five cabins that can accommodate a total of ten people, it also has four quarters for nine crew members .
Tiger Woods usually calls it “my dinghy” even though everything looks like a dinghy: with a cruising speed of 18 knots, it also has an onboard gym where the golfer continues to train. Woods, in fact, prefers to stay on this yacht during tournaments held in New York.
With cherry wood interiors, Privacy also boasts a three-person elevator, a huge jacuzzi, big enough to seat eight, and the inevitable cinema room and bar area. The little extra of this mega yacht is provided by the area that Tiger Woods wanted dedicated to scuba diving: this also explains the presence of an (inflatable) decompression chamber and an area dedicated to filling bottles. ‘oxygen.
The luxury is also complemented by three jet skis and two scooters for short shore excursions. Obviously, all this has a price: privacy costs 17 million euros and its annual maintenance amounts to 1.7 million euros.
