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

Defending 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 to become the first Swedish player at No. 1 in the world.

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

Woods is not playing in the Masters for the first time in his career because of back surgery that will keep him out of competitition until the summer.
