Scott Brown, playing with limited status on the PGA TOUR, made the most of his second start of 2013, winning the Puerto Rico Open presented by seepuertorico.com to regain full status on TOUR.
Brown, who made his first TOUR cut a year ago at this event, birdied the final hole to move ahead of Fabian Gomez and Jordan Spieth to earn his first career victory, punch his ticket to THE PLAYERS and move inside the FedExCup top 30.
The 29-year-old wasn’t the only winner in Puerto Rico, however. Fabian Gomez and Justin Bolli each moved inside the coveted top 125 in the FedExCup standings.
Despite a bogey on the final hole that dropped him from the lead, Gomez tied for second and move 84 spots up the ranks to No. 62. Bolli, who tied for fourth in Puerto Rico, is now ranked 123rd in the FedExCup.
At the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, Tiger Woods earned his second victory of the young 2013 season, climbing from 10th to second in the race for the FedExCup.
Also making a big move, especially on Sunday, was Adam Scott. The Aussie closed with a sensational 64 to tie for third at Trump Doral and move up 67 spots to No. 43 in the latest FedExCup standings. A Sunday rebound for Rory McIlroy helped the world No. 1 to a tie for eighth and a move to 107th in the season-long race.
Below are the biggest movers, both up and down, following the Cadillac Championship and Puerto Rico Open.
