WHO’S NO. 1: Rory McIlroy went back to No. 1 in the world by winning the PGA Championship, ahead of Luke Donald and Tiger Woods.

He was asked Wednesday who he thought was the best player in golf _ with Tiger Woods listening at the back of the room.

Give the kid credit for diplomacy.

“Tiger has won more than anyone else this year, winning three times,” McIlroy said. “I’ve won a couple of times, including a major. Luke has been very consistent again. It’s hard for me to sit up here and say that I’m the best player in the world or Tiger is. Sure, I feel like I’m the best and Tiger feels like he’s the best. It’s really a hard one for me to come up here and say.

“Tiger has been the best player in the world for the last 15 years. Just that people that are mentioning my name with the likes of him is a huge compliment.”
