Tiger Woods climbs 228 rungs on the Official World Golf Ranking ladder

Tiger Woods' solo 47th place finish at The Masters last week has vaulted him 228 places up the Official World Golf Rankings to 745th. 

Woods slumped to weekend rounds of 78 at Augusta National to finish on 13-over par in golf's first major of the year that marked his first official competitive event on the PGA Tour since November 2020 at the same tournament. 

But despite his disappointing weekend on Georgia's hallowed turf, Woods at least bumped himself up the rankings from a lowly 973rd when entering the week.

Woods has been World No.1 for a record 683 weeks in his career. 

The 15-time major champion was last World No.1 in May 2014 and he also holds the record for cumulative weeks in the top spot at 281 weeks, falling between June 2005 and October 2010. 

Woods confirmed after 72 holes at The Masters that he would 100% be playing in The Open Championship at St Andrews this July.

Tournament officials of the JP McManus Pro-Am have also today confirmed that Woods will be competing in their tournament a week prior to the last major of the season. 

"Tiger has been a great friend and avid supporter of the Pro-Am for a very long time and we are absolutely thrilled he has committed to play once again in the tournament," said tournament host JP McManus.
