Westwood proves he's not a one-trick pony

Some musings from last week's fight for No. 1:

Lee Westwood proved he wasn't a one-week wonder atop the world rankings.

The Englishman finished just one shot behind winner Francesco Molinari at the World Golf Champions HSBC Champions at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai, China.

Four players had a chance to become No. 1, including Americans Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.

Germany's Martin Kaymer was the other play aside from Westwood, who had a chance at No. 1.

Neither Woods, Mickelson or Kaymer had a legitimate chance heading into Sunday's final round, because Westwood was near the top of the leaderboard.

The Englishman carded a final round 67 to finish the tournament at 18-under par.

Another note, the tournament was a success for Woods in the sense that he finished in a tie for sixth.

However, El Tigre wrapped up his disappointing year without a victory for the first time since he turned pro back in 1996.

He also was crushed in the Thailand Skins Game that Camilo Villegas triumphed in.

Woods won just one skin in the one-day tournament in his mother's home country.

Now he's off to the Australian Masters, site of his last victory - one year ago.
