Chris Dunham,

The 2013 PGA TOUR season moved into its third month as the calendar turned to March during The Honda Classic. While the top of the standings remained unchanged following the action at PGA National, there was no shortage of season-changing performances during last week’s event.

Michael Thompson, the latest first-time winner on the PGA TOUR, made an incredible 186-position move up the standings from 197th to 11th. That mark is a new career-best for Thompson whose previous high was 16th following a top-10 finish at last year’s Sony Open in Hawaii.

Thompson, who has played three FedExCup Playoff events in the last two seasons, played himself into the big-point World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship this week, as well as August’s World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship. The 27-year old’s FedExCup stock is certainly on the rise.

FedExCup fixture Geoff Ogilvy, who has teed it up in 22 of a possible 24 Playoff events, was a runner-up at PGA National and moved to 26th in the latest FedExCup standings -- his first week inside the top 30 since the 2011 TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola. Ogilvy birdied two of his final three holes Sunday to card one of only five below-par rounds posted at PGA National in Round 4.

A former FedExCup No. 1 and a former major champion -- Justin Rose and Lucas Glover -- made 60-plus position jumps up the ranks with ties for fourth at The Honda Classic.

Below are the biggest movers, both up and down, following The Honda Classic.
