ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Tiger Woods is not even No. 2 in the golf rankings.

He has dropped to No. 3 after Martin Kaymer won in Abu Dhabi and overtook him for the No. 2 spot. Lee Westwood is No. 1.

Kaymer has been No. 3 but advanced by winning the European Tour event by eight strokes in his first tournament this year. Woods begins his 2011 season Thursday at Torrey Pines in San Diego.

Kaymer said "we'll see how long it takes him to overtake me again."

Master champion Phil Mickelson dropped to a No. 5 ranking. He had been sharing fourth with U.S. Open champ Graeme McDowell, who tied for third in Abu Dhabi.

Mickelson finished 37th Sunday. He says he doesn't dwell on the rankings and is concentrating on the upcoming majors.
