Tiger Woods’ 2013 season is already off to a good start, and he hasn’t even hit a shot yet.
Woods, who makes his season debut this week at the Abu Dhabi Championship, leapfrogged Luke Donald to return to the No. 2 spot in the Official World Ranking.
The rest of the top 10 was largely unchanged: World No. 1 Rory McIlroy, Woods, Donald, Oosthuizen, Rose, Adam Scott, Lee Westwood, Brandt Snedeker, Bubba Watson and Steve Stricker (who rose from 13th).
Further down the rankings is where you can find the PGA Tour’s newest star, Russell Henley. The Sony Open winner made the biggest jump of the week, to 50th from 130th. Henley now has invitations to The Masters, Players Championship and PGA Championship, and at No. 50 is in good position to earn a spot in the WGC-Accenture Match Play field.
