Tiger Woods' laser approach leads to birdie at Honda
Tiger Woods' 12th-place finish at The Honda Classic was his best since 2015, and it resulted in a big jump in both the FedExCup and Official World Golf Ranking.
Woods jumped 49 spots to No. 130 in the FedExCup standings after earning 65 points for his performance at PGA National. He's earned 100 points this season.
It took 365 FedExCup points to qualify for last season's Playoffs. Woods has not competed in the FedExCup Playoffs since finishing second in 2013. He is the only two-time winner of the FedExCup (2007, '09).
Justin Thomas, the 2017 FedExCup champion, leads this season's standings with 1,258 points. Troy Merritt is 125th with 105 points. The top 125 after the Wyndham Championship will qualify for the Playoffs.
Woods also jumped 155 spots in the Official World Golf Ranking, moving from 544th to 389th. It's his highest ranking since Nov. 14, 2015.
Thomas returned to No. 3 in the world ranking after his win at The Honda Classic.
