Victory assures Woods spots in first two WGCs


With his victory Sunday at the Chevron World Challenge, Tiger Woods will improve to No. 21 in the Official World Golf Ranking on Monday. The victory essentially assures Woods spots in the first two World Golf Championships of 2012. 

Woods will get into the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, Feb. 22-26 at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Marana, Ariz. The top 64 players in the world ranking as of Feb. 13 qualify for the event. 

The 71-time PGA Tour winner has also all but locked up a spot at Doral for the WGC-Cadillac Championship. The top 50 players as of Feb. 27 will get into the field. 

Woods has won 16 World Golf Championships including the WGC-Cadillac Championship five times and the match play event on three occasions.

Geoff Ogilvy has the second-most WGC victories with three.
