AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Three players at the Masters have a chance to replace Tiger Woods as No. 1 in the world.

Masters champion Adam Scott, who squandered a great shot at being No. 1 when he lost a three-shot lead at Bay Hill, would need to finish in a two-way tie for third this week at Augusta National.

Henrik Stenson (No. 3) would need at least a two-way tie for second at the Masters to become the first Swedish play at No. 1 in the world.

Jason Day (No. 4) would have to win the Masters to have any shot at being No. 1.
