Tiger Woods up 129 places in World Golf Rankings

Tiger Woods moves up 129 places in the World Golf Rankings after finishing in a share of 23rd position at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Tiger Woods has moved into 539th position in the World Golf Rankings after a successful return to the sport last week.

The former world number one has been plagued by back problems, but the 42-year-old has maintained that he is now playing pain-free after more surgery on the area.

Woods was never in contention for victory at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, but the 14-time Major winner put together for solid rounds to secure a share of 23rd spot.

The performance and completing four rounds at a difficult course is being regarded as a huge success, but the American has also received the bonus of improving 129 places in the world rankings.

As it stands, Woods is next scheduled to compete at the Genesis Open, which takes place between February 15 and February 18.
