Tiger Woods posted the two worst rounds of his career at the Masters over the weekend, but just making the cut vaulted the 15-time major winner 228 spots in the Official World Golf Ranking.
Woods, who had not played a competitive round since the 2020 Masters, played in November of that year, entered last week ranked 973rd. He moved to 745th following his 47th-place showing at Augusta National.
That's a far cry from the 679 weeks he has spent at No.1, but the 46-year-old's ability to ever compete again had been in question since nearly losing his leg in a car accident 14 months ago.
Woods is unlikely to resume anything close to a full PGA Tour schedule in the future, but did say after Sunday's round that he intends to play in The Open Championship at St. Andrews in July.
Scottie Scheffler increased his grip on the top spot with his victory. Anointed as the new No.1 just last week, Scheffler now has a 180.17-point lead over Collin Morikawa, who moved backed to No.2 in the world with his solo fifth at the Masters.
Jon Rahm slipped a spot for the second consecutive week and is No.3 after a T27 at the Masters. Viktor Hovland is No.4, followed by Cameron Smith, who moved to a career-best No.5 despite a disappointing 73 on Sunday that left him in a tie for third.
Rory McIlroy tied the Sunday scoring record at the Masters with a 64 and his runner-up finish pushed him up two spots to No.7, just behind Patrick Cantlay. Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson and Sam Burns round out the top-10.
