PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Only two players have a mathematical shot to catch Tiger Woods in the FedExCup standings but there could be a change at the top of the Official World Golf Ranking this week.
Of course, considering Woods is now tied with Sergio Garcia for the lead THE PLAYERS Championship at 10 under, all could be a moot point.
Woods currently has 1,740 FedExCup points -- which is 343 more than Brandt Snedeker and 535 ahead of Billy Horschel. The winner of THE PLAYERS gets 600 points.
McIlroy could regain the No. 1 spot in the world if he wins his first PLAYERS and Woods finishes 13th alone or lower. Mclroy shot 66 in the first round and tees off at 1:39 p.m. ET.
